Chocolate Soft Cake is a luxurious dessert known for its rich, chocolatey flavor and incredibly soft, moist texture. This cake is perfect for any chocolate lover, offering an indulgent treat that melts in your mouth.

The batter for chocolate soft cake is made from a mixture of flour, cocoa powder, sugar, eggs, butter, and sometimes a touch of melted chocolate or coffee to enhance the flavor. The ingredients are mixed until smooth and creamy, then baked until just set, ensuring the cake remains soft and moist.

Once baked, the chocolate soft cake can be enjoyed plain or with a variety of toppings. Some popular options include a dusting of powdered sugar, a drizzle of chocolate sauce, or a dollop of whipped cream. Fresh berries or a scoop of ice cream also make wonderful accompaniments.

Chocolate Soft Cake is versatile and can be made in various sizes and shapes, from single-serving ramekins to larger cakes. It is perfect for serving at dinner parties, special occasions, or as a decadent treat any time.

Its combination of rich chocolate flavor and tender, moist texture makes Chocolate Soft Cake a favorite among dessert enthusiasts, offering a truly indulgent and satisfying experience.

  1. Preheat the oven to 302℉(150℃). Separate the eggs. Be careful not to break the egg yolks. Should not have any egg yolk segment in the egg white. Keep the egg white bowl in the fridge.
  2. In a bowl, mix well vegetable oil and cocoa powder, add in warm water, and mix until combined. Add in cake flour, mix well; add in egg yolks, mix until combined. Set aside.
  3. Take the egg white bowl out of the fridge; add in lemon juice, vanilla extract and granulated sugar, and use a hand mixer to beat until it forms soft peaks. Pour the batter into the whipped egg white bowl, fold the egg white into the batter until just combined.

  4. Line the cake pan with parchment paper or baking mat, pour in the batter, smooth its surface, give it a few taps and send into the oven to bake for 32 minutes.
  5. Take the cake out of oven, and let it cool down on the cooling rack.


By cake flour, I mean low protein flour, which normally contains 7-9% protein (Mine is around 8%). Not self-rising flour.
