Step 2: To Make The Chocolate Cake

Begin making a chocolate cake by adding to your mixing bowl your flour, granulated sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix to combine. 

In a separate mixing bowl, add buttermilk, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla. Mix to combine. 

Gently pour your wet mixture into your dry mixture, while mixing. Stir until combined. 

In a small saucepan, bring your water to a boil, once boiling, steadily pour your boiling water into your cake batter while stirring. Mix only until combined, set your cake batter aside for a minute. 

Take your cake pans, and lightly grease the bottom and sides. Next, take approximately 2-3 tsp of flour into the bottom of each pan. Tap the sides until the entire bottom has a light coating of flour, dup any extra. 

Pour your cake batter into your prepared pans. Bake at 350°F for 25-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow your cakes to cool to room temperature. 

Step 3: To Make The Chocolate Frosting

Now, to make your chocolate frosting. In a mixing bowl, add your room temperature butter, and cocoa powder. Beat with your mixer until your butter becomes creamy and smooth. Add in confectioners’ sugar, whole milk, and pure vanilla. Stir until your frosting is smooth. 

If your frosting is too stiff or is slightly dry, add a little more milk. We would recommend adding one tablespoon of milk at a time so that you don’t add too much. Once you are happy with the consistency of your frosting, it is time to assemble your cake! 

Step 4: To Assemble The Cake

When your cake has cooled to room temperature, and your frosting is prepared, you can begin assembling your cake. To assemble your cake, first, remove the bottom layer cake from your cake pan and place it onto your serving plate, or cake stand. 

Add frosting on top of your first layer of cake. Smooth it out so that your next layer will sit evenly. Add your second layer of cake, and then top it off with frosting. Add frosting to the entire side of your cake, in the top. Smooth it out, or texture it as desired.

You may also choose to decorate your cake using a piping bag, or by using other toppings such as chocolate chips, regular sprinkles, or chocolate shavings. After your cake has been decorated, you can store the cake, or serve it right away and enjoy.

How To Store The Cake

There are three main ways you can store your finished cake. The main ways are to store it at room temperature, in the refrigerator, or in the freezer. Below are the details on each of the storage methods. 

Room Temperature: Storing your cake at room temperature is a good option. You will want to be sure that you place it on a cake stand with a lid, or have another larger bowl to put over it so that it does not dry out. When you store your cake at room temperature, it is typically good for one to two days. Please note that if you live in a warm, damp climate you may want to store your cake in the refrigerator rather than room temperature as it may melt or grow bacteria faster. 

Fridge: You can also refrigerate your finished cake. To do this, you will also want to try and cover your cake, so that it does not dry out and go bad. A cake that is stored in the fridge typically lasts between 3 to 4 days.

Freezer: Perhaps you were looking to store your finished cake for longer amounts of time. If this is the case, you might try freezing your cake. To do this, you will want to be sure your cake is in an airtight container, and then maybe frozen for up to three months. 

Tips & Tricks

When it comes to preparing your cake, there are a few tips and tricks in my experience to help you better prepare the cake. Below are a few for your reference. 

Tip #1: Serve Fresh

This cake is absolutely amazing when it isn’t enjoyed one to two days after it has been prepared. For the best results, you can eat this cake as soon as it has been assembled, and you will be delighted by the amazing taste and flavors. 

Tip #2: Frosting

This cake is usually not decorated a whole lot, and the frosting is usually left a bit textured rather than smooth. However, if you would like to decorate the cake a different way, you can try making your frosting on the thicker side, and use a piping bag to decorate your cake. 

Tip #3: Get Creative

Ready to get creative and decorate this cake any way you wish. Some fun ideas are to use chocolate chips, chocolate shavings, other chocolate candies, or colored sprinkles to liven up this delicious chocolate cake. 


Do I need to use buttermilk, or can I use regular milk?

Rather than just using regular milk to substitute for buttermilk, we recommend using a milk and lemon juice combination. To do this, you will take one cup of milk, and mix it together with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Mix and allow it to sit for a few minutes before adding it to your cake batter. 

Do I need to use unsalted butter, or can I substitute it for salted butter?

For the frosting, it is not absolutely critical that you use unsalted butter. If you are having difficulty locating unsalted butter, you may substitute for salted butter, however, please be aware that it will increase your sodium content in the frosting. 

Why does the water have to boil? 

Boiling water in the cake batter does a few different things to the mixture. It helps to increase the overall flavors, makes your cake moister, and helps your finished cake to be soft.

  1. I cooked my cake for 30 minutes, it was slightly dry. Do you think that is because it was cooked too long? The frosting was out of this world!

    • Hi Kerry,
      First of all, thank you for trying this recipe! To address your question about the cake being slightly dry, there are a couple of things that might have contributed to this. One is that perhaps you used a little too much flour, not quite enough water, or it may have been baked a little too long. I’m going to guess that you are likely correct, and it may have been cooked a little too long for your oven. Ideally, you want to bake it just long enough for a toothpick to come out clean. Another way of telling is to tap the top of the center of the cake with your finger. If the cake springs back, it is done. I hope that this helps you out! 🙂
