Moist Chocolate Cake (Bread Machine)

Lee Thayer


This recipe is from the cookbook that came with my bread machine, and I will say it is spot on as chocolate, and moist! No frosting needed! Your bread machine needs a cake function in order to make this. I have a Morrie's 19 function bread machine. Weight measurements are all done in grams on a digital scale.

How to Make Moist Chocolate Cake (Bread Machine)


  1. Place the ingredients into the pan of the bread machine in the order listed, select Cake function, press start. About an hour and a half later, it will be done.
  2. Remove the pan from the bread machine and set on the counter to cool for about an hour. Once it has cooled, then turn out the cake onto a wire rack to completely cool. (The indentations on the top are from dropping out of the pan onto the rack, I now use an oven mitt to catch it.)
  3. Slice, and use a large spatula to pick up and set on plates, or it will fall apart. Top with some whipped cream, enjoy! Here is a slice served with two brownies.
