Amazing Chocolate Cake


Everyone needs a classic, delicious and moist chocolate cake recipe. Here you have an easy fool-proof chocolate cake recipe that you will love.


  • ½ cup milk room temp.
  • ⅔ cup buttermilk room temp.
  • ¾ cup sour cream room temp.
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tspn Instant Coffee
  • ½ cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1 box Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix


  1. Preheat oven to 325° F and prepare three deep 6″ cake pans (or 2 8″ cake pans) by lightly greasing the sides with shortening and dusting with all purpose flour. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer whisk together all the wet ingredients until well combined.
  3. Sift in the chocolate cake mix, cocoa powder and instant coffee and mix until just combined. The batter should be smooth and completely combined but do not overmix!
  4. Evenly divide batter between your prepared cake pans and bake for 23-26 minutes.
  5. When the cake is done, the top should spring back to the touch and when inserting a toothpick in the center it should come out clean with no wet batter.
  6. Remove from the oven, go around the sides with a small offset spatula to separate the cake from the pan but not removing it from the cake pan just yet.
  7. Allow cakes to cool in the cake pans for about 5 minutes, then carefully flip the pans and remove the layers from the cake pans onto a cooling rack to cool completely before decorating.
