How To Make Too Much Chocolate Cake Recipe?

Making this chocolate cake couldn’t be easier! One bowl (mixer) and one loaf pan are all you need. We’ve included a few notes at the bottom of the recipe to help answer some common questions.


  • Chocolate Cake
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature (we recommend using eggs straight from the fridge)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk (or use whole milk mixed with 1 teaspoon white vinegar or lemon juice).


Step 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease the bottom and sides of a 9×5-inch loaf pan.

Step 2. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat (or microwave). Add the cocoa powder to the melted butter and stir well until smooth. Add sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract to the cocoa mixture, then start again.

Step 3. Put flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl; add dry ingredients into wet ingredients 1/3 at a time (and mix well after each addition).

Step 4. Pour buttermilk into the prepared pan, then pour in the chocolate cake batter. Spread evenly with a rubber spatula. Bake for 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean (the top will be cracked).

Step 5. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes on a wire rack before serving.


The batter will rise a lot! Be sure to use a tall, narrow loaf pan. The baked cake should be thin and have a few cracks on top. The top of the cake should not spread out during baking. 

Use a non-stick silicone baking mat or parchment paper to make scraping the baked layer out of the pan easier.
