Homemade Chocolate Cake Recipe



So if you want to make this birthday cake in lockdown follow this method.

1. Process chocolate cookies in a blender or a food processor, choose the more chocolaty and crispy cookies as it will give a flavourful taste to the cake. I used 2 different types of cookies, bourbon and good-day.

2. Add the chocolate cookies powder into a big bowl. Next, add 2 1/4 tbsp baking powder to it, which helps in giving the rise and roughly mix it. Pour 3 1/2 cups of warm milk into it and whisk until smooth and combined. 

3. Preheat the oven to 340 degrees F or 170 degree C. Pour the cake batter in the greased 7’’ pan. Grease pan with butter and line the bottom with the parchment paper.

4. Now, pour the cake batter into the greased pan. Bake it for around 12-15 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean. Do not overbake this cake.

5. Allow it to cool down for 10 minutes, turn it over. Remove the paper and your 3 ingredient flourless chocolate cake is ready.

6. For cake frosting, you can either spread nutella on the cake, or make chocolate frosting recipe or can also make a chocolate ganache recipe.

7.  Well, I went with my gut and made a hot chocolate ganache recipe and pour it on the cake and decorated with grated chocolate and thankfully it turns out to belicious


For Chocolate Ganache, we need to cut 1 cup of dark chocolate in small chunks. Next, add those chocolate chunks in a large bowl. Than, add 2 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp sugar and melt it on a double boiler, as it cools down pour 1 cup of lukewarm milk and whisk until it’s smooth and combined. Pour hot chocolate ganache on the cake. Decorate the cake with some grated chocolate, freeze it for an hour and serve this rich, moist Chocolate Ganache Cake to your family or guests.


Note*  Though ganache can become really hard when you keep it in a refrigerator for more than 4 hours but since I have to serve it fast and I have to keep this dessert in a fridge for just 1 hour so Chocolate Ganache was perfect recipe for this dessert else I would have gone for chocolate frosting recipe.


Not just my mom, my whole family loved this cake. She was never a fan of desserts, but when I made this cake for her, she ate a lot of it and I never saw her more happier.
