Whether you’re looking to impress your friends and family or just satisfy your own sweet tooth, this recipe is sure to make any chocolate lover’s dream come true.
First, you’ll need to gather your ingredients. You’ll need 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1 cup of cocoa powder, 1/2 cup of softened butter, 1 1/2 cups of sugar, 3 large eggs, 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract, 1 cup of buttermilk, and 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Once you’ve gathered your ingredients, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease an 8-inch round cake pan. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder. In a separate bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract and buttermilk.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring until just combined. Gently fold in the chocolate chips. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning it out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, top with your favorite frosting and enjoy!
