video instructions available below 👇 


– 1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
– 2 cups granulated sugar
– 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
– 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
– 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
– 1 teaspoon salt
– 2 large eggs
– 1 cup whole milk
– 1/2 cup vegetable oil
– 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
– 1 cup boiling water


1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.

2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Sifting helps to remove any lumps and aerates the dry ingredients for a lighter cake texture.

3. Add the eggs, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Beat on medium speed for about 2 minutes until well combined. The batter will be thick at this stage.

4. Gradually stir in the boiling water until the batter becomes smooth and liquid. Be careful as the batter will be thin.

5. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared cake pans.

6. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.

7. Remove the cakes from the oven and allow them to cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Then, transfer the cakes to wire racks to cool completely.

8. Once the cakes are completely cooled, you can frost them with your favorite chocolate frosting or ganache. Feel free to get creative with your decorations!

9. Slice, serve, and savor every delectable bite of this irresistible chocolate moist cake.

– For an extra moist cake, try adding a tablespoon of sour cream to the batter.
– Make sure not to overmix the batter once you add the boiling water. Stir until just combined to avoid a dense cake texture.
– Store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.


With its rich chocolate flavor and moist crumb, this chocolate moist cake is a true crowd-pleaser. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or simply indulging in a sweet treat, this recipe is sure to delight. So go ahead, whip up a batch, and let the heavenly aroma of chocolate fill your kitchen. Happy baking!
