Recipe of Yummy Chocolate Cake


  1. butter and flour for coating and dusting the cake pan
  2. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  3. 3 cups granulated sugar
  4. 1½ cups unsweetened cocoa powder
  5. 1 tablespoon baking soda
  6. 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  7. 1½ teaspoons salt
  8. 4 large eggs
  9. 1½ cups buttermilk
  10. 1½ cups warm water
  11. ½ cup vegetable oil
  12. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Butter three 9-inch cake rounds. Dust with flour and tap out the excess. (see cooking lesson below)
  3. Mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a stand mixer using a low speed until combined.
  4. Add eggs, buttermilk, warm water, oil, and vanilla. Beat on a medium speed until smooth. This should take just a couple of minutes.
  5. Divide batter among the three pans. I found that it took just over 3 cups of the batter to divide it evenly.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the cake meets the toothpick test (stick a toothpick in and it comes out clean).
  7. Cool on wire racks for 15 minutes and then turn out the cakes onto the racks and allow to cool completely.
