  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. Combine dry ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well to ensure all ingredients are evenly combined.
  3. Prepare wet ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, vegetable oil, buttermilk, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  4. Combine wet and dry ingredients: Gradually pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring gently until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can lead to a dense cake.
  5. Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and spread it evenly. Tap the pan gently on the counter to remove any air bubbles. Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Cool: Once the cake is baked, remove it from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then, carefully transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Serve: Once the cake has cooled, slice it into wedges and serve on its own or with your favorite frosting or whipped cream. Enjoy the fluffy texture and rich chocolate flavor of this delightful treat!
  8. Storage: Store any leftover cake in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the refrigerator for up to a week. Make sure to cover it well to prevent it from drying out.
