Hi Bod67

There has never been written instruction for the method to make the moist chocolate cake tutorial. As you have all the ingredients, present and correct 🙂 please follow Paul’s verbal instructions in the tutorial. Meanwhile, I will post written instructions in the next couple of days.

If you need more information or help, please post again. 🙂


This is how I make it, it isn’t verbatim but it is close enough:

Place the butter, chocolate, sugar, water and coffee in a saucepan and set aside.
Next, place oil, eggs, buttermilk in a jug, whisk until combined, set aside.
Next in a bowl, sieve together self raising flour, plain flour and bicarb, set aside.
Now all the ingredients are in the right order ready to be combined.

Place the saucepan on a low heat and melt the chocolate, butter ingredients. Stir the ingredients to prevent burning and melt until combined. Set aside to cool for approx 10 minutes.
Pour in the egg/buttermilk/oil mixture little at a time into the chocolate sauce mixture until combined.

Finally, combine the flour mixture in three stages with the sauce mixture. Watch Paul carefully in the video on the mixing method.
Pour the batter into the prepared cake tins and bake!!


Thanks Madeitwithlove.

I appreciate your quick reply, and what you have done.
But this is for Pauls Moist Chocolate Cake, (Which I have made a few times, and it’s great).
The method I can’t find is the Easy chocolate Cake.
It’s the recipe with the boiling water, as the last ingredient.



Hi Bob

I apologise for getting the wrong cake. However, the only easy chocolate cake I can see is the one with a shiny ganache with fresh fruit. Is it the method for the shiny sauce that you are asking for? It would help me immensely if you could furnish me with the link. Thank you. 🙂


This is the video that shows you how to make the easy chocolate cake
