A luscious and indulgent chocolate cake with European flair.

Chocolate Cake


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and 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.
  3. Add eggs, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Mix until well combined.
  4. Stir in the boiling water until the batter is smooth. The batter will be thin; don't worry; it's normal.
  5. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared pans.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then remove them from the pans and let them cool completely on a wire rack.
  8. Once cooled, you can frost and decorate your European Chocolate Cake as desired.
  9. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
