For you to prepare the cake, you want the appropriate ingredients. The ones that you need include:
· 2 saucepans
· Heat-safe bowl

· 2/3 cup boiling water
· 2/3 cup butter, room temperature
· 2 2/3 cup sugar
· Standing mixture with paddle attachment
The best way to make your chocolate cake
Preheat an oven to 325 F and then fill a saucepan with water and bring it to boil. After turning off the heat, rest the bowl on the inside rim of the saucepan. You should be cautious when doing it. Make certain you place the bowl just above the water elevation. This is to prevent the chocolate from overheating.
You then need to boil water using a saucepan on the stove, and throw the chocolate into it. To prevent the chocolate from seizing, be sure that the chocolate is still warm.
Place sugar and butter into a mixing bowl and then mix the two until it becomes light and fluffy. This procedure not only mixes the two, in addition, it aids in aeration that’s vital for the introduction of a light and tender cake. To make certain that ingredients are incorporated evenly you should occasionally scrape down the bowl sides.
Gradually add egg yolks and vanilla to the mix and beat them till they are fully incorporated. The aim of adding eggs is to stop the batter from dividing. Eggs at room temperature have been shown to result to a more cohesive batter. When you get a good mix, beat in the melted chocolate.
Sift all the dry ingredients. These include: powder, salt, flour, and soda. You should then add them together with sour cream into the batter. The ideal way of doing it’s adding 1/3 of the dry ingredients and 1/2 of sour cream. You should repeat this process until all the sour cream and dry ingredients are evenly incorporated. The reason you should gradually add the ingredients is to allow the batter to accept large liquid quantities that create a moister and flavorful cake.
Conquer the battery until it becomes smooth. When doing it be cautious that you don’t over-mix. You then need to prepare the baking pans using pan spray and then divide the batter evenly. Finally, bake your cake until it springs back to the touch.
