Ingredients: 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 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:

  1. 1 cup heavy cream
  2. 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped

For the Chocolate Curls (Optional):

  1. 4 ounces dark chocolate, melted


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour three 9-inch round cake pans. You can also 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 about 2 minutes until well combined.
  4. Gradually stir in the boiling water to the cake batter until fully incorporated. 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. Let the cakes cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer them to wire racks to cool completely.
  6. While the cakes are cooling, prepare the chocolate ganache. In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream until it just begins to boil. Place the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl and pour the hot cream over it. Let it sit for 1 minute, then stir until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth. Let the ganache cool until it thickens slightly but is still pourable.
  7. Once the cakes are cooled, place one layer on a serving plate or cake stand. Spread a layer of ganache over the top. Repeat with the remaining layers, then use the remaining ganache to frost the sides of the cake. Chill the cake in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to set the ganache.
  8. If desired, make chocolate curls for decoration. Using a vegetable peeler, shave curls from the block of dark chocolate. Arrange the curls on top of the chilled cake.
  9. Slice and serve this decadent triple chocolate masterpiece to eager dessert enthusiasts. Brace yourself for compliments and requests for seconds!

Conclusion: The Triple Chocolate Cake is the ultimate indulgence for chocolate aficionados.
