**Footnotes**
*I shift all dry ingredients because my cake will result moist
*when mixing the butter,sugar,eggs and vanilla make sure there are well blendend(I prefer to fold the ingredients)
*When you adding all the ingredients together add them gradually don’t just pour it them all at once*
*check the chocolate cake after being bake for 35 minutes ~it might not be ready depending on the oven~
*Make sure that the butter is room temperature so you can mix well with your sugar,eggs and vanilla
