Always Perfect Chocolate Cake

The weekends coming up and I wanted to end this week on a sweet note. I'm sharing my favorite Chocolate Cake recipe of ALL time. It's my favorite because it turns out the same EVERY time, always perfect and moist. I just hate all the time to bake a cake and it turns out dry, don't you? Not this cake, not ever. I use all organic ingredients, whole wheat bread flour, and special dark cocoa, but the great thing about this recipe is that even if you change out the ingredients to your favorites, it still turns out great!


{for cake}

  1. 1 3/4 cups organic whole wheat bread flour
  2. 2 cups organic cane sugar
  3. 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  4. 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  5. 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  6. 1 tsp. salt
  7. 2 eggs
  8. 1 cup whole milk
  9. 1/2 cup coconut oil
  10. 2 tsp. vanilla
  11. 1 cup bowling water
Heat oven to 350*. Grease and flour bundt pan. Stir together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in large bowl or stand mixer. Add eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water {batter will be thin}. Pour into pan and bake for 50-55 minutes. Cool in pan for 15 to 20 minutes then turn out onto cooling rack to cool completely.

{for icing}

  1. 1 stick organic unsalted butter
  2. 2/3 cup cocoa
  3. 3 cups organic powdered sugar
  4. 1/3 cup whole milk
  5. 1 tsp. vanilla
Melt butter and stir in cocoa. Alternately add powdered sugar then milk beating to spreading consistency. Add small amount of additional milk to thin if necessary. Stir in vanilla.

This cake is so fast and easy! It's so yummy and pretty enough for company. Have a glorious Friday everyone and let's all eat some cake! Chocolate makes everything better!
