Benefits of Chocolate

Chocolate contains a myriad of benefits that make it even more enticing. Dark chocolate, in particular, is rich in antioxidants that help fight free radicals and reduce the risk of heart disease. It also contains flavonoids that promote brain health and improve cognitive function. Consuming chocolate in moderation can elevate mood and increase serotonin levels, providing a sense of well-being. Additionally, it can boost endorphins, which act as natural mood enhancers.

Ingredients :

To create this luscious chocolate cake, you will need the following ingredients:

• 2 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 ¾ cups granulated sugar
• ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
• 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
• 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 2 large eggs
• 1 cup milk
• ½ cup vegetable oil
• 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
• 1 cup boiling water


• Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.

• In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well until all the dry ingredients are thoroughly incorporated.

• Add the eggs, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to the dry mixture. Beat on medium speed for about 2 minutes until the batter is smooth and well combined.

• Gradually stir in the boiling water, starting with a small amount and increasing it as you mix. The batter will be thin, but that's normal.

• Pour the batter evenly into the prepared cake pan.

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

• Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.

• Once cooled, frost the cake with your favorite chocolate frosting or ganache, and decorate as desired.


• For an extra indulgent touch, consider adding chocolate chips or chopped nuts to the batter before baking.

• To make the cake even more moist, you can brush each layer with a simple syrup made from equal parts sugar and water.

• Allow the cake to cool completely before frosting to prevent the frosting from melting.

• This chocolate cake can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
