· 1 tsp. baking soda

baking powder

vanilla extract

· Whisk

· 2/3 cup sour cream

· Two cake pans

How to make your chocolate cake

Step 1

Preheat an oven to 325 F and then fill a saucepan with water and bring it to boil. After turning off the heat, rest the bowl on the inner rim of the saucepan. You should be careful when doing it. Ensure that you put the bowl just above the water height. This is to prevent the chocolate from overheating.

You then need to boil water using a saucepan on the stove, and throw the chocolate into it. To prevent the chocolate from seizing, be sure that the chocolate is still warm.

Step 2

Place butter and sugar into a mixing bowl and then combine the two until it becomes light and fluffy. This process not only mixes both, in addition, it aids in aeration that’s vital for the introduction of a mild and tender cake. To make certain that ingredients are incorporated evenly you need to occasionally scrape down the bowl sides.

Step 3

Gradually add egg yolks and vanilla into the mix and beat them till they are fully incorporated. The aim of adding eggs is to stop the batter from dividing. Eggs at room temperature have been shown to result to a more cohesive batter. When you get a good mix, beat in the melted chocolate.

Step 4

Sift all the dry ingredients. These include: salt, powder, flour, and soda. You should then add them together with sour cream to the batter. The best way of doing it’s adding 1/3 of the dry ingredients and 1/2 of sour cream. You should repeat this procedure until all of the sour cream and dry ingredients are evenly incorporated. The reason you should gradually add the ingredients would be to allow the batter to take large liquid quantities that create a moister and delicious cake.

Step 5

Beat the battery until it gets smooth. When doing it be cautious that you don’t over-mix. You should then prepare the baking pans using pan spray and divide the batter evenly. Finally, bake your cake until it springs back to the touch.
