Moist Chocolate Cake Xmas Trees Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3 cups of sugar
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/8 cups cocoa powder, preferably Dutch-process
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups very hot water
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, melted
  • 6 ounces white chocolate, melted
  • Red and green mini candy covered chocolates (recommended: M & M’s)
  • Silver dragee

Instructions 

  1. Heat your oven to 350 degrees F which is approximately 180 degrees Celsius. Next, cut 1-inch holes out of the bottom of a large inverted foil roasting pan in neat rows, leaving 1 to 2 inches in between the holes. Invert the pan and place paper cooler cups in the holes to hold them upright during baking.
  2. Sift and mix together — 3 cups sugar, the flour, and cocoa, along with the baking powder and baking soda, and lastly — a pinch of salt as per your tastes. Pour this mixture into a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment (or use a hand mixer), and blend for a short while. Whisk together the eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla extract in a medium-sized bowl. Add to the dry ingredients, and mix at low speed for 5 minutes. Gradually, add in the hot water, mixing at low speed just until uniformly everything combines together. Understand that this batter will be quite thin inconsistency.
  3. Pour the batter into the pre-arranged paper cooler cups. Bake until a tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean (a few crumbs are okay), while the center feels firm when touched — about no more than 25 to 30 minutes! Let the cakes cool off in the pan. Chill for 2 hours then peel off the cooler paper, carefully whilst not tearing off the tip of the peaks.
  4. Place the cakes on a rack over a sheet pan lined with parchment paper, and then using a fork, drizzle both colors of chocolate followed by sticking ‘M & M’s’ and silver dragee for making it look like ornaments on a little Christmas Tree!
