How to Make Old Fashion Chocolate Cake AKA OMG Chocolate Cake


  1. Instructions:
    Pre Heat oven to 350 Degrees . you want to Grease up two 8” or 9” inch round cake pans.
    In a medium-size bowl, combine flour,cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. (make sure you stir all the dry ingredients in the medium bowl very
    Now in a larger bowl you want to combine butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Beat well(use a electrical blender if you have one it will help you more to eyeball how well blended the ingredients are.)Now you want to add the flour to the larger bowl slowly along with the milk and evaporated milk.(*note*if the batter seems to thick go ahead and add ½ cup whole milk more)after that you can add 1/2 cup of Sour cream or buttermilk.
    Pour batter into prepared pans divided the batter evenly well. Bake for about 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted center comes out clean.These are tall layers and may take a bit longer to bake than you are use to .However, ovens are different .Please watch your cake carefully.*Do not open the oven during the first 15minutes of baking it may cause your cake to fall or go flat.Do not over bake. Cool on wire racks for 10 minutes then invert to cool completely.
    If you want to make cupcakes, cupcakes will be done in about 15-20minutes. In a larger rectangular baking pan, cake will be done in approximately 30 mintues
  2. **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
