Moist Chocolate Cake

Hey everyone,

Have been busy these days with my studies but not to worry I have a new recipe of Chocolate Cake and this cake to absolutely the one to die for. I am not exaggerating I mean it. 

It is just heavenly absolutely light, soft and spongy.

When I sliced the cake it came out to be so soft, moist and fudgy. 
And the best part is when you pour the rich, creamy chocolate ganache on top and it runs in all directions. 

Yumm! :)

The final mixture of the cake before its kept in the oven is very thin and runny nothing to worry about and it takes plenty of time to bake my cake batter took fifty minutes the time varies depending on the different oven.

flour 1-3/4 cup
baking powder 1-1/2 tsp 
eggs 2
Hot boiling water 1 cup
Oil  1/2 cup
Milk 1 cup
Cocoa Powder 3/4 cup
Salt   a pinch
Castor Sugar  2 cups
Baking Soda  1-1/2 tsp

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Stir together sugar, salt, flour, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda.
Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla beat on high speed for two minutes.
Stir in boiling water. Don't worry the mixture will be runny.
Pour in prepared greased pans and bake for 45 minutes. (Personally it took my cake 50 minutes to bake)
when the skewer comes out clean and the cake is firm to touch the the cake is baked.

I keep my icing quite simple so here are the ingredients:
Tetra pack cream    1/2 cup
cooking chocolate    50 g
Icing sugar sifted      1/4 cup

Combine chocolate and cream on a double boiler and let the chocolate melt and get incorporated in the cream. When done take out the bowl and let it cool.
Then add in the icing sugar.

When the cake is cooled slice it in the middle and sandwich the cake with the icing and cover the entire cake with it.....
Just pour it on top! 

Its now ready to serve...
