Moist Chocolate Cake



I wanted to try this Moist Chocolate Cake because it looked so good and easy. This cake indeed turned out very soft, moist and delicious. Thanks Pupsha! :o) I have tried several recipes from her blog and it all turned out great. I simply love her easy recipes!



I made a mistake though. Can you spot it?

Don't think you can since I bury my mistake from your eyes. LOL! Anyway, I made a mistake by baking it in a bundt pan since I thought it would make a prettier cake. What a disaster!!! My cake got stucked on the pan again and turned out broken. The picture above is the only piece that was presentable. I purposely bought PAM for baking with flour and thought this would solve my problem. Since I also saw a review of this item at American Test Kitchen the other day with colorful result. They tested it with bundt pan and said all their cake turned out non-stick and beautiful. So, I quickly went out and bought one (even paid more to get the exact same brand). However, not in my case though. *sob sob* Pam, why you let me down? Do you think I should let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes first before I invert it on a cooling rack to cool completely? I inverted mine while the cake first out of the oven and it literally got broken into half. Aiyaya.... just horrible!

Anyway, this cake is simply delicious, so soft and moist and now it's my keeper recipe. Next time I would bake it in a square/round pan and lined with parchment paper and greased it, just for precaution. Oh, for my bundt pan, I only need to bake it for 30 minutes.

hi Ching
I use Bakers Joy for my bundt pan creations; I think it's on the same shelf as Pam. Have worked for me everytime so far; nothing is left in the pan. But anyway, no matter, ur cake still looks delicious :-)

Yes, it does looks moist. Oh dear, I am just like you. I have to get the exact equipment too. Haha. Pity it didn't turn out well. But I'm sure it'd have tasted nice anyway, whether pretty or not. ;)

give the crumbs to me anytime!! =) it looks really moist and delicious. perhaps u do have a point about cooling down a little first as when I'm impatient, i find similar things happening too :(

Amelia said...

yes, you should let it cool for 15 mins or so before turning it out. a hot moist cake is always more fragile..

Peony said...

cake sure looks moist n delicious.
thanks for the link, may try baking this cake, :D

ya, since this isn't a chiffon cake, think shd let the cake "rest n settle" in tin 5 - 10 mins before inverting onto rack to cool.

Blur Mommy said...

Looks really yummy! Just wondering, did it break because it slide off the pan when u invert it? I was looking at the Pam too. Hmm..maybe I shldn't get it.

Thanks Tatiana for your recommendation. I think it's not the product, but me...couldn't wait to turn it over and did the damage. :P

Hi Singairishgirl,
Thanks for your kind words. Next time I will have to let the cake cool in the pan first. :)

Yup daphne,
My impatient did it for me. I guess I was over confident with the product that recommended by Test Kitchen. I should have waited! Oh well, lesson learnt.

Amelia,
Thanks for letting me know. Will definitely do that next time. :)

Peony,
Yup! Yup! You definitely need to try this cake, so moist and delicious, I couldn't stop at just one piece. Thanks for your advice too! :)

Hi Blur Mommy,
You should get the PAM for baking with flour because it's not PAM fault, it's me lah! Should have let the cake cool in the tin for 10-15 minutes first before turning it over. My cake didn't slide off at all, it just broke into two when I flip it over on a cooling rack. :P *oops!*

Kelly Mahoney said...

Oh my goodness, looks so rich and delicious. Can I get a slice?

East Meets West Kitchen said...

I like Pam with flour for baking, but have also used just Pam. Both worked for me, and I usually let my cake rest for 5-10mins. Regardless of that, you have a moist chocolate cake there!

Big Boys Oven said...

You are so funny....... but i think the cake looks fantastic!.

WokandSpoon said...

It looks really rich and moist - just because it's broken doesn't mean you can't use your hands and dig in ;-) hehe!

Little Corner of Mine said...

Thanks IronEaters! It's really moist just like the name said. :)

Thanks Andaliman. :)

Sure Kelly. Fedex a slice your way! ;)

Thanks V! Now I know to rest my cake in the pan first. Hehe...

Thanks Big Boys Oven! Regardless of look, it's all in tummy liao. :P

WokandSpoon,
Exactly! That's what I did to some really bad broken ones. LOL!
