Irresistible Chocolate Cake

Inspired by the legendary Smokin’ and Grillin’ wit AB on YouTube, we’re diving headfirst into the world of grilling, but with a twist dessert! Get ready for an unforgettable experience as we fire up the irresistible allure of Chocolate Infusion Cake that will elevate your taste buds to new heights.

Ingredients

For the Chocolate Cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup boiling water

For the Chocolate Ganache:

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 6-8 Tbsp milk

Instructions

Preheat your smoker or grill to 350°F (175°C).

In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, oil, eggs, and vanilla until well combined.

Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring continuously to form a smooth batter.

Stir in the boiling water until the batter is well combined. The batter will be thin, but that’s okay.

Grease and flour two 9-inch cake pans.

Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans.

Place the pans on the preheated smoker or grill and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. You can also use my SnG Food thermometer.

While the cakes are baking, prepare the chocolate ganache. In a mixing bowl, combine softened butter, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, vanilla, salt, and enough milk to achieve a smooth and creamy consistency. Mix well.

Once the cakes are done, remove them from the smoker or grill and allow them to cool completely.

Once the cakes are cool, spread a layer of chocolate ganache on top of one of the cakes. Place the second cake on top.

Use the remaining chocolate ganache to frost the entire cake, covering it with a delicious layer of chocolatey goodness.

Slice and enjoy your Chocolate Cake with the perfect balance of rich chocolate flavor!
