  • 1/3 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 sticks of good quality butter, softened in room temperature.

  1. Combine dark chocolate chips, cocoa and boiling water.  Stir until the chocolate is dissolved.  Set aside to cool.
  2. Sieve together the cake flour and kosher salt.  Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract on medium high speed for 3 minutes.  Add the chocolate mixture and beat till fluffy.
  4. Add 1 egg at one time, beating after each addition until well combined.
  5. Reduce to low speed, and add flour mixture at 3 intervals while scraping down the side of mixing bowl.
  6. Pour batter in prepared pan (oiled and floured pan), and gently tap the pan to remove air bubbles.
  7. Bake in 325F oven at second bottom rack, for 60 to 70 minutes.  Test the cake with wooden stick.  If it comes out clean, the cake is done.
  8. Remove the cake from oven, and set aside to cool.
