SUPER Moist Chocolate Cake for My Hubster!!

Yesterday was my husband's 34th birthday.. "Happy birthday gons!! Love u!" Since my so called quarantine period is still not over yet, this year there's no biggie and happening celebration but i decided to surprise him with my very own home bake moist chocolate cake. I got this recipe online. OMG... it's supper yummeh and super moist ok!! *bejoget jap*

The recipe is very easy and simple.. What i like the most is that the measurement is using cup method *joget again* and the ingredients are very simple. First attempt and I can easily remember without having to look at the recipe anymore :D

So here goes with my simplified how to version..

Super Moist Chocolate Cake

250gm butter
1 cup castor sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 tea spoon vanilla essence
4 eggs
1 cup of fresh milk (warm)
11/4 cup of self raising flour
3/4 cup of van houten cocoa powder

how to:

1. Mix the butter, castor sugar, brown sugar and vanilla essence in one big bowl using mixer (kudos to my MIL for the mixer since i don't have one :D)

2. Put in the eggs one by one into the same big bowl. Mix it well.

3. Pour in the warm fresh milk and self raising flour into the mixture. Do not use mixer anymore and make sure you do it one by one repeatedly. Milk first then flour.

4. And the last step, pour in the cocoa powder into the mixture and bake the mixture roughly about 1 1/2 hour.

Simple Chocolate Ganache

200ml of whipping cream
(kudos to my Sue my ex colleague for letting me know where to buy, her husband is a chef with Berjaya)
Half bar of the van houten cooking chocolate
20gm butter

1. Heat up the whipping cream for about 15 minutes.. put aside for 2 minutes and then put in the coking chocolate and butter. Mix it well and then put inside your fridge to let it cool and thick.

Jeng.. Jeng.. Jeng!!!!

*joget lagi :D
