Ultimate Chocolate Cake Recipe

My “Ultimate Chocolate Cake” recipe is the only chocolate cake recipe you will need! It’s a chocolate cake soaked with chocolate syrup, frosted with a chocolate buttercream and wrapped in MORE chocolate! Soo much chocolate can only mean one thing – this cake is damn delicious! I love this cake because it’s very chocolate-y but not overwhelming or too sweet.

INGREDIENTS

For Chocolate Sponge Cake:
9 large eggs, at room temperature
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons (225g) white granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup (156g) all-purpose flour
1/3 cup (35g) dark cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons (6g) baking powder

For Buttercream:
2 cups (453g) butter; softened at room temperature
1, 14-ounce (396g) can sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons (14g) dark cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

For Chocolate Syrup:
1 cup (175g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup (236ml) heavy cream
1 tablespoon (15ml) gold rum

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line 5, 8-inch cake pans with parchment paper. Alternatively, use 2, 9-inch cake pans for 4 layers.
  2. Prepare the sponge cake first. Place eggs and sugar into a mixer bowl. Whisk on high speed for about 10 minutes. Mixture needs to be very voluminous and almost white in color. Add in the vanilla and whisk just to incorporate.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder and cocoa powder. Using a fine mesh sifter, add the dry ingredients into the egg mixture. Fold in the flour thoroughly but gently, mixing in all the flour before adding more. READ MORE
