1
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 23 cm round cake tin with parchment paper.
2
In a large bowl, sift together 200 grams all-purpose flour, 75 grams cocoa powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, and 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda. Set aside.
3
In another bowl, whisk together 200 grams granulated sugar, 2 large eggs, 120 ml vegetable oil, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract until well combined.
4
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with 240 ml buttermilk, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
5
Stir in 240 ml boiling water until the batter is smooth. The batter will be thin, but this is normal.
6
Pour the batter into the prepared cake tin and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
7
Allow the cake to cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
8
For the frosting, melt 200 grams dark chocolate and allow it to cool slightly. In a separate bowl, beat 200 grams unsalted butter until creamy. Gradually add 250 grams powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and the melted chocolate, mixing until smooth and fluffy.
9
Once the cake is completely cooled, spread the frosting evenly over the top and sides of the cake.
