    1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

    2 eggs
    1 cup milk
    1/2 cup vegetable oil

  5. guys mascarpone icing is soo good tbh better than buttercream, esp for chocolate cakes

  6. i never saw a recipe of chocolate with water ? like there is water everytime i'm lost

  7. No eggs?! I NEED to try this recipe. So intrigued.

  8. Guilherme Oliveira

    Well, I was waiting for 12 DIFFERENT RECIPES.

  9. Matthew Bottcher

    As much as I hate to say this, my favorite chocolate cake is tasty’s ultimate chocolate cake recipe.

  10. the way she pisses everyone off in the comments just sends lmfaoooo

  11. Why am I watching this?
    I'm allergic to chocolate😅

  13. Delish I am so glad you made a chocolate cake thanks a lot that's a classic

  14. this is so enjoyable I love watching this

  15. The title is a little misleading. She really only tried five or six recipes and the rest were developments from those original recipes.

  16. although i am not a huge fan of chocolate cake,this cake looked DELISH ( PUN INTENDED)LOL

  17. most of these recipes aren't even that weird. i was under the impression she'd try cake with soda or… hot sauce or something.

  18. halfway through watching this i got up and made a chocolate cake (it’s baking rn)

  19. Great video! So interesting to watch someone create a cake recipe. I tinker, but not like this, and to see a yummy cake without eggs surprised me. Would love to see this with a chocolate Swiss Meringue Buttercream. For me, whipped ganache frosting, even with cream cheese, is just too rich. The SMBC is more buttery than it is sweet, and easier than it seems to make.

  20. My son was deathly allergic to eggs for most of his childhood. I'm a chef and my first thought was mayo cake! I could sub Vegenaise for the mayo. I have figured better out since then but that was a good starting point.
    I think for the potatoe cake the potatoes should be steamed and then riced.It would make for a fluffier product 🤷‍♀️

  21. Chocolate sourdough cake is my family's favourite!

  22. Was hoping Lena had tested a Sachertorte (Austria) recipe since many claim it's the best chocolate cake in the world. Cafe Sabarsky near Delish serves a good rendition. I had the original in Vienna…don't know if it's the best in the world but definitely super tasty. Love this series. Lena always does a terrific job…and June is a great taster/critic. 😀👍

  23. All mayonnaise chocolate cake? Did you mean Portillos chocolate cake?

  24. I would like to see you bake Rose Levy Beranbaum’s All American Chocolate Butter Cake with Marcel Desaulniers’ chocolate icing from his Old Fashioned Chocolate Layer Cake and get your friends reactions to your cake and it.

  25. MAYO IN CAKE! 😷🤢

  26. Great recipe but I'm 100% putting vanilla lol

  27. I like a fudgy cake, but the idea of the diner-style frosting is totally mouth watering you're right!

  28. Also I thought you would tried literally 12 weird recipes not 1 original, 4 actually weird, and 5 test cakes of same variations and volume of same ingregients

  29. Mayonnaise? What kind and brand ? And mashed potatoes? That's really weird

  30. Janice Thomas Hamilton

    I love videos like this because they do all the testing that I don't have the time or money to do myself 🙂

  31. mariana martinez jimenez

    Butter team all the way

  32. Loved the video! Definitely going to try this:))

  33. I’m not a huge frosting person either and I didn’t know you could make a whipped ganache! Will definitely try it ❤️

  34. Elizabeth Roberts

    Am I the only one who prefers a fudgy chocolate cake????

  35. Alžbeta Borková

    Thank you Chef Lena

  36. What’s the ganache recipe ?

  37. OOPS, sorry, I found it in a link below. Thnx. I liked it and subscribed. Keep up the great work. It's refreshing to see someone who strives for perfection like Chef Heston Blumenthal (also on you tube).
