Chocolate Decadence Cake Recipe


  • 1½ cup cake flour
  • 1½ cup sugar
  • 8 Tbs unsalted butter
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened chocolate
  • ½ cup hot water
  • 2 extra large eggs
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 9 oz semi-sweet chocolate


  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Place flour, sugar, butter, cocoa powder, baking soda and baking powder in a bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on slow until all ingredients are combined. Raise speed to medium and continue to mix until mixture is smooth.
  3. Stop the motor and pour in the chocolate. Mix for 1 minute, then, with the motor running, pour in hot water. Then add the eggs, 1 at a time, adding the next after the previous is absorbed. With the motor still running, add buttermilk. Stop the motor periodically and scrape to get the bottom of the bowl incorporated.
  4. Grease your 7” cake pans, divide the batter into pans and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
