Easy Chocolate Cake

Hi could you post the method for the easy chocolate cake recipe please? Its the one with hot water not coffee.

Thank you ?


On the recipe calculator theres a “easy chocolate cake” . Its not Pauls moist chocolate cake, its a diferent chocolate cake. The recipe is there but not the method.
Yesterday while going tru videos I found the video where Paul shows how to make the easy chocolate cake. Its on the Naked Butcream Wedding Cake.


Hi Raquel de Sousa

Thank you.



1: Place all dry ingredients into the mixing bowl and pulse gently to incorporate. Keep the mixer running on low.

2: Add eggs one at a time until incorporated.

3: Add vanilla extract

4: Add milk

5: Add oil

6: Finally add boiling water a little at a time. Incorporate slowly to form a glossy thin batter.

7: Bake in 2 x deep cakes pans at 150c (time not give. I would say around 1hr 15 mins but please check timing yourself by keeping an eye on the baking.)

8: or 5 sandwich pans at 180c for approx 35 – 40 minutes

Please take note that the given instructions in the ingredients tab state bake in fan assisted oven.

I hope this answers your query. Please come back if you need more information. 🙂
