This is a recipe for a two-layer chocolate cake with whipped cocoa buttercream. But this is not your boring, generic, dry, chocolate cake recipe. This is THE chocolate cake recipe. It’s the one you’ll want to use for birthday cakes, bake-offs, bribes, and Sundays (…Because, Sunday.).
And even though this cake is more than delicious enough completely by itself, we’re going to turn it into a layer cake, and coat it with an incredible Whipped Cocoa Buttercream frosting.
Every time someone uses the word ‘moist’, the internet tends to explode. Well, okay. Maybe not the entire internet, but there is a pretty large faction that just hates the word ‘moist’! As a food blogger, this makes my life very hard. How else am I supposed to describe this deliciously decadent, fantastically fluffy, and marvellously mousse-like chocolate cake to you?
I can tell you repeatedly that it’s “not dry, but also not under-baked and wet; it’s just that right kinda consistency”, but that doesn’t seem quite succinct enough. So, it’s moist. Incredibly MOIST. So moist that if the gratuitous use of the word “moist” makes you uncomfortable, you should’ve probably sat down before reading this post.
I made this for someone’s birthday recently. She liked it a lot. She said that it’s one of the best cakes she’s ever had. And she loved the frosting too. I’m not being biased or anything but, you should take her word for it. This is a wonderful chocolate cake recipe, the whipped cocoa buttercream frosting is yummy (and I’m not usually even a big fan of frosting!), and you should make it this weekend. It’ll only take you an hour or so.

You might be wondering why most of this post is written in a font that’s nowhere else to be seen on this blog. Well, when I first wrote the post, I was trying to experiment and make the blog look “cool”. It didn’t work, but I’ve kinda always liked that this one post remained a little off-kilter (kinda like me).Print
