For the Chocolate Cake Layers:

  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 2 cups granulated sugar
  3. 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  4. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  6. 1 teaspoon salt
  7. 2 large eggs
  8. 1 cup whole milk
  9. 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  10. 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  11. 1 cup boiling water

For the Chocolate Ganache Filling:

  1. 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  2. 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped
  3. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

For the Chocolate Frosting:

  1. 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  2. 4 cups powdered sugar
  3. 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  4. 1/2 cup heavy cream
  5. 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  6. Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour three 9-inch round cake pans. Line the bottoms with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add the eggs, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes until well combined.
  4. Gradually add the boiling water to the batter, mixing until smooth. The batter will be thin. Divide it evenly between the prepared cake pans.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.
  6. While the cakes are cooling, prepare the chocolate ganache filling. In a saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat until it just begins to simmer. Remove from heat and add the chopped chocolate and butter. Let it sit for 2 minutes, then whisk until smooth. Allow the ganache to cool and thicken slightly.
  7. Once the cakes are completely cooled, level the tops if necessary. Place one cake layer on a serving plate or cake stand. Spread a generous layer of ganache over the top. Repeat with the remaining layers, then refrigerate the cake for 30 minutes to set the ganache.
  8. While the cake is chilling, prepare the chocolate frosting. In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened butter until creamy. Gradually add the powdered sugar and cocoa powder, mixing until smooth. Add the heavy cream, vanilla extract, and salt, and beat until fluffy and well combined.
  9. Remove the chilled cake from the refrigerator and frost the top and sides with the chocolate frosting. Use an offset spatula to create swirls or peaks for decoration.
  10. Slice and serve this decadent Triple Chocolate Cake to eager chocolate enthusiasts. Watch as their eyes light up with delight with each rich and luscious bite.
