Easy Chocolate Cake Recipe

For the dark chocolate cake:
• 1/4 cup + 3 tablespoons (42 g) unsweetened cocoa
• 2/3 cup of boiling water
• 4 large eggs
• 1 1/2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
• 1 1/2 cups + 1 tablespoon of flour
• 1 cup of sugar (200 g)
• 2 teaspoons of baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon of salt ( you can add less)
• 10 tablespoons of butter (142 g)

Preheat the oven to 350°F (170°C)

Prepare the rich chocolate cake:
• Place the cocoa in a bowl and add the boiling water. Whisk until smooth and cool to room temperature.
• In another bowl mix the eggs with 1/4 of the cooled off cocoa mixture together with the vanilla.
• In your mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
• Add the butter and the remaining cocoa mixture. Mix on low speed to moisten the dry ingredients, and then increase to high speed and mix for at least 1 1/2 minutes.
• Slowly add the egg mixture in three parts, scraping the bowl after each addition.
