    Seriously, if you want very simple use a box cake mix. Duncan Hines. Betty Crocker etc.

  5. Kathy23 said :

    go to the store and get one from a box.
    buy some chocolate bars or chips and put them in the cake mix before you bake. it will look
    and taste like home made.

    1/2 cup margarine (softened)
    2 eggs
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    1/2 cup Hershey’s cocoa
    2 cups flour
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup milk
    1 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1 cup boiling hot water
    In a large bowl cream together margarine, eggs, sugar and cocoa until fluffy.
    In another bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt; add to butter mixture. Beat in milk and vanilla extract. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin). Pour batter into prepared pans.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely.

    1/2 cup margarine or butter, softened
    1 3/4 cup confectioners sugar
    1/4 cup Hershey’s cocoa
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3 Tablespoons cold water
    Cream all ingredients together until spreading consistency.

    Betty Crocker, Duncan Hines, and Pillsbury have some great cake mixes. All you need is eggs, water, and oil. Mix them together and you’re good to go. This is probably going to be the easiest way to bake a cake than from scratch.

  8. 1zeka1 said :

    This might sound repetitive… but I strongly recommend Betty Crocker’s Devils Food Cake Mix. Whenever, I’m short on time and am having company over…. that’s the cake base I use. Besides, there are so many variations you can do to change the taste appearance of this cake just by adding a few extra ingredients.

  9. old know all said :

    Three eggs.
    Use the eggs in their shells to measure out the same weight of cooking fat, sugar and self-raising flour.
    Beat the sugar and fat together
    Add the eggs (without their shells) and beat together.
    Add 2 tablespoons of cocoa (or drinking chocolate) to the flour and sift them together into a large bowl.
    Stir the egg sugar and fat mixture in.
    Put it in a tin and bake at gas Mark 4 for an hour.
    Then the important bit – lick the bowl out.

    Simple ‘N’ Delicious Chocolate Cake

    A very simple to make chocolate cake that I developed while trying to combine my chocolate and coffee cravings. It tastes so good no one will believe how easy it was! (It can be frosted with chocolate or coffee icing but I like it plain.)”

    200 g white sugar
    135 g all-purpose flour
    45 g unsweetened cocoa powder
    5 g baking soda
    6 g salt
    115 g butter
    1 egg
    5 ml vanilla extract
    235 ml cold, strong, brewed coffee

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8 inch pan. Sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
    In a medium bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat well. Add flour mixture, alternating with coffee. Beat until just incorporated.
    Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.

    good luck, happy cooking

    I agree with the other answerers about using a boxed cake mix. They are good and very easy.

    Check with the Cake Doctor – many wonderful cakes with with box mix as the base

    Here is a wonderful cake doctor website recipe:

    1 package (18.25 ounces) plain devil’s food cake mix
    2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    3/4 cup Kahlua
    3/4 cup buttermilk
    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    3 large eggs

    Fluffy Chocolate Kahlua Frosting:
    2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    6 tablespoons boiling water
    2 tablespoons Kahlua
    8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, softened
    4 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    1. Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 9-inch round cake pans with solid vegetable shortening, then dust with flour. Shake out the excess flour. Set the pans aside.

    2. Place the cake mix, cocoa, Kahlua, buttermilk, oil, and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat 2 minutes more, scraping down the sides again if needed. The batter should look well combined. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans, smoothing it out with the rubber spatula. Place the pans in the oven side by side.

    3. Bake the cakes until they spring back when lightly pressed with your finger, 28 to 30 minutes. Remove the pans from the oven and place them on wire racks to cool for 10 minutes. Run a dinner knife around the edge of each layer and invert each onto a rack, then invert again onto another rack so that the cakes are right side up. Allow to cool completely, 30 minutes more.

    4. Meanwhile, prepare the Fluffy Chocolate Kahlua Frosting. Place the cocoa powder in a large mixing bowl and pour in the boiling water and Kahlua. Stir with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until the cocoa comes together into a soft mass. Add the butter and blend with an electric mixer on low speed until the mixture is soft and well combined, 30 seconds. Stop the machine. Add the confectioners’ sugar and cinnamon and beat with the mixer on low speed until the sugar is incorporated, 1 minute. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat until the frosting lightens and is fluffy, 2 minutes more.

    5. Place one of the layers right side up on a cake plate or stand. Generously and evenly frost the top of the layer. Place the second layer on top, and generously frost the top of the cake creating decorative swirls with the spatula. With the remaining frosting, frost around the sides of the cake using smooth, clean strokes.

    6. Slice, then serve.

    If you can, go out and buy a box of chocolate cake mix. Normally the only ingredients are eggs, water and veggie oil!!

    This is the easiest one I could find. But really Duncan Hines has the best cake mix. I make them all the time. They are light an fluffy and moist. Good luck!

    Featherlight Chocolate Cake Recipe courtesy Gale Gand
    Show: Sweet Dreams
    Episode: Less is More

    12 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks), plus more for the pan
    1 3/4 cups sugar
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    2 1/4 cups sifted cake flour, plus more for the pan
    1/2 cup good-quality cocoa powder, such as Valrhona or Droste
    1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1 1/4 cups ice water

    Serving suggestion: Dust with confectioners’ sugar and serve with milk
    Arrange a rack in the upper 1/3 of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F.

    Butter and flour a bundt pan or tube pan. (You can use a mixture of cocoa powder and flour instead of flour, to prevent white spots on the cake.)

    In a standing mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, or using a hand mixer, cream the butter until light and fluffy. Mix in the sugar. One at a time, mix in the eggs, then the vanilla, occasionally scraping down the mixing bowl.

    Meanwhile, in another bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and 3/4 teaspoon salt.

    Add 1/3 of the flour mixture; then 1/3 of the ice water. Repeat, mixing after each addition. Transfer the batter to the pan and bake until springy and dry, about 40 to 45 minutes.

    Let cool in the pan on a rack, then carefully turn the cake out. Just before serving, sift confectioners’ sugar over the top. Serve with very cold milk!

    Notes about the recipe: When I developed this recipe I was just looking for a good, reliable dark cocoa cake that could sit on the counter over the weekend and be enjoyed in slivers, craving by craving. This cake is really moist and keeps for days. I just finished one that’s been hanging around the kitchen for 6 days! You could frost it with creamy white icing but it hardly needs it. My friend Lana’s mom June was one of the best cooks I knew as a kid in the ’60s and she did a cake by the same name, though the recipe handed down to me from her daughter is a bit different.

    Easy Chocolate Cake

    1 cup evaporated milk
    3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 cups white sugar
    3/4 teaspoon baking powder
    3/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    5 eggs
    1 cup butter, melted
    1/4 cup water
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
    1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
    3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/2 cup butter
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9 inch tube pan. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the 1 cup of evaporated milk and the 3/4 cup of cocoa. Heat until the cocoa is dissolved. Remove from heat and set aside.
    In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the eggs, melted butter, water, vanilla and the cocoa mixture, mix until well blended. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
    Bake for 40 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
    To make the chocolate icing, combine the remaining condensed milk, evaporated milk, cocoa and butter in a saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thick and paste-like. Spread over cooled cake.

    Not only is this recipe so easy it’s almost absurd, it is also just yummy!
    •3 cups flour (680 grams)
    •2 cups sugar (450 grams)
    •6 tablespoons cocoa (100 grams)
    •2 teaspoons baking soda (10 cc’s = 10 ml)
    •1 teaspoon salt (5 cc’s = 5 ml)
    •3/4 cup vegetable oil (200 cc’s)
    •2 tablespoon vinegar (30 cc’s)
    •2 teaspoon vanilla (10 cc’s)
    •2 cup cold water (480 cc’s)
    Mix the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients. Stir until smooth. Bake two greased, floured pans at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Makes two layers of a two-layer 9-inch or 8-inch round cake, or one small sheet cake. When cool, frost it using castor sugar, cocoa and a little boiling water. Another tip: put a little ground coconut into the frosting, – it adds a little texture…..

    Check out Cook’s Illustrated/America’s Test Kitchen.

    If using cocoa powder, dissolve it in a little water first, I think the technique is called “blooming”.

    Add a little strong coffee to it, coffee makes chocolate taste more “chocolately”. HAVE FUN!!ENJOY!

    Pour a chocolate cake mix into a 9 x13 pan
    Instant chocolate pudding mix
    1 cup of water
    1/2 cup of oil
    4 eggs
    a small bag of semisweet chocolate chips
    mix it well and bake at 350 degrees until cake springs back from your touch (about 30 minutes).
    So moist you don’t even have to grease the pan.

    Great served warm with whipped cream!
