How To Make It
  1. For the Cake: Preheat the oven to 180°C (350F). Line a 9-inch springform baking pan with a round parchment paper. 
  2. Mix in a large bowl (dry ingredients) sifted flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. 
  3. Mix in another bowl (wet ingredients) milk, oil, egg and vanilla extract. 
  4. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mix it until well combined.

    Then add hot boiling water into the batter and stir again until well combined. 

  5. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared spring form.

    Place it into the preheated oven and bake for about 45-50 minutes. Check if the cake is done, by sticking a bamboo stick, if it stands upright & comes out clean with no batter on it, then the cake is done. 

  6. Remove and let it cool completely on top of a wire rack before covering with Frosting. Slide around the cake to loosen it from the pan, turn the pan over onto a metal rack and peel off the paper.
  7. For the Cream-cheese Frosting: Beat the cream cheese and margarine in a large bowl until it becomes smooth. Add vanilla extract and heavy cream, stir it again. Then gradually add in powdered sugar. Tipp: If the frosting is too soft, add more powdered sugar, but if the frosting is too stiff you may add more milk, just make sure the frosting becomes spreadable consistency. 
  8. Spread cream-cheese frosting evenly on top & side of the chocolate cake. The cake can be consumed directly or it can be stored in a refrigerator for up to 3 days in an airtight container. Tipp: If stored in the refrigerator, it’s recommended to let it stay at room temperature at least 1 hour before serving.
