Yummy Chocolate Cake

I opined that a good chocolate cake recipe in one's arsenal is relatively important especially if you are a chocoholic like me :). It is just like the cake that wil makes you want to come back for some more after a slice. Well being not really satisfied with just one chocolate recipe, I am constantly looking out for new yummalicious recipe to satisfy my chocolate cake thirst. This is one of the chocolate cake that is really moist.

Recipe goes this way:
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup butter
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups water

Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter. Add the sugar and beat until well combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Beat in the chocolate and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and water alternately to the beaten mixture, beating on low speed after each. Pour into the prepared two 9' round pan.

Bake in 180C for 30 - 35 mins.

Frost with favourite chocolate frosting/ganache.
