Thousands of foodies are praising a TikTok user after she revealed how to make the ‘best chocolate cake ever’ at home.
While chocolate cakes contain eggs, milk, flour, sugar and cocoa powder, the recipe combines other unusual ingredients like boiled coffee to bring it to life.
Chloe, who goes by the name Baking Envy online, posted the TiKTok video on November 16 and it has already received more than 500,000 views.
Chloe used canola oil, vinegar, baking powder, salt and boiling coffee for extra flavour in addition to milk, sugar, flour and eggs
The recipe itself is very simple to follow, doesn’t require any expensive kitchen gadgets and only takes an hour to bake in the oven
