 Chocolate Blackout Cake


  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 ½ unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon instant espresso powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons sea salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups butter, softened
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 ½ cups unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • a pinch of salt
  • 7 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 3-4 cups of chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). 
  2. For the Cake: Prepare a three 9-inch round cake pans, and grease each.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the dry ingredients together. Pour the wet ingredients and mix until well incorporated.
  4. Pour evenly between the three cake pans. Bake for 35 minutes or until the cakes are set. Let it cool for a few minutes.
  5. For the Frosting: Using an electric hand mixer, cream the ingredients (except chocolate chips) until smooth.
  6. How to Assemble: Cut two 9-inch round circles from cardboard.
  7. Cover with foil. Spread just a little bit of frosting on one of the cardboards and stick the first cake on it (this helps it hold). Stack the cakes up, frosting between each layer, around the outside, and on top. Chill for 30 minutes.
  8. For Chocolate Chipping: First, start with the side of the cake.
  9. Prepare and spread the chocolate chips in a wide jelly roll pan. Place the other cardboard on top of the chilled cake. Holding the cardboard ends like a wheel position, roll the cake into the chocolate chips like a wheel with your hands on the side to support the cardboard, pressing gently to get them to stick on the sides of the cake.
  10. 10. Next, sprinkle and press chocolate chips on top of the cake. You can melt a little extra chocolate and drizzle it over the top.
