Every home cook and baker requires a decadent chocolate cake recipe they can enjoy on a regular basis. This chocolate cake is a single layer of fluffy cocoa-laced cake slathered in your choice of a velvety chocolate buttercream frosting or chocolate cream cheese frosting. You can use whatever frosting recipe you enjoy when preparing this cake. The chocolate cake will have a very fine crumb from the amount of boiling water and oil that is used in the batter. The cake primarily relies on cocoa powder for color and chocolaty taste, and when it comes down to it, is a healthier choice than other varieties of chocolate. Cocoa powder is very high in several mineral and nutrients, like iron, dietary fiber, and magnesium, while also being low in sugar. If desired, use a frosting that includes melted dark chocolate for even more decadent taste to this cake recipe. Dark chocolate has a high number of flavonoids, which are a variety of antioxidant.
