Devil's Food Chocolate Cake (DFCC)

Assalamualaikum dan hai,

I didn't know that I have a lot of pictures and recipes to share. Almost in the storage, with no pending post to update. hehe.

Alhamdulillah, yesterday was our 4th Anniversary. I have no more word for anything else, I am grateful for a tiny to the biggest thing happens in my life. I couldn't ask more.

By the way, few days before around on this week or last week. I've been survey on Lazada's site for window shopping online and for sure to mark wishlist. That time, I had use my hub's laptop and it's just for marking really.

As usual, Lazada always had a code for discount right? but, I accidentally pressed express checkout, and it's considered bought with notification on my husband's phone that he's on his phone playing candy crush that time! haha.. sorry and thanks love! :P

Here it is, a beautiful bundt pan now is my new toy!

So, back to square again, yesterday, I baked a chocolate cake, that I try to google for trust able recipes. I think chocolate cakes are really good with sour cream or buttermilk. It came out from the pan in success!

I had a little taboo on chocolate cake, so this is so great recipe with high successful outcome. Please try it out! This is something to die for, and worth a try for not so beginner like me.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk boiling water into cocoa powder until smooth. Whisk in sour cream.
  3. Large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
  4. ( We did manually on this) Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in eggs, one each at a time and beat until incorporated then beat in vanilla extract.
  5. Then, add in flour mixture in three additions, alternate with cocoa mixture. Beat until combined.
  6. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour in your lined pans.
  7. Bake about 1 hour to extra 30 mins or until your deep stick came out clean. hehe
Glaze is depend on you, but I'd just put icing sugar on top!
