  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup boiling water

For the Frosting:

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour three 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add the sifted dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with buttermilk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  6. Stir in the boiling water, ensuring the batter is well mixed.
  7. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared cake pans and smooth the tops.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. For the frosting, whip the heavy cream until it begins to thicken. Add the confectioners’ sugar and vanilla extract, and continue whipping until stiff peaks form.
  11. Once the cakes are completely cooled, generously frost each layer with the whipped cream frosting.
  12. Optional: Decorate the cake with chocolate shavings, berries, or any other toppings of your choice.
