Updated: Sep 17, 2023

Indulge in the heavenly world of chocolate with MotherBee’s famous Chocolate Moist Cake – a recipe cherished by both amateur and seasoned bakers alike. Whether you prefer it as a luscious cake or delightful cupcakes, this recipe will undoubtedly win the hearts of all who taste it. With a moist and soft texture, it’s a delight that will leave everyone craving for more.

The Secret Ingredient: Callebaut Dark Chocolate Callets

The magic of this recipe lies in the use of the finest chocolate – Callebaut Dark Chocolate Callets with an intense 54.5% cocoa content. This premium chocolate ensures that every bite is infused with a rich and delightful chocolate experience that you won’t find in ordinary cakes.

Tips for a Perfect Bake

While MotherBee’s Chocolate Moist Cake is divine, there are a couple of common pitfalls that many encounter during the baking process.

To avoid a disappointing outcome, here are some essential tips:

  • Mind the Coffee Solution: Be patient when mixing the coffee solution. Adding hot coffee can cause the leavening agent to lose its gases, resulting in a dense and dry cake. Allow the coffee to cool down before incorporating it into the batter.

  • Don’t Forget the Sugar: Forgetting to add sugar can lead to a thicker mixture that won’t rise properly. Always double-check your ingredients to ensure a perfectly balanced cake.

Turning a Mistake into a Delight

If, by chance, you encounter a mishap during the baking process, fear not! You can still transform an imperfect cake into a delectable treat. Simply crumble the cake into small pieces, mix in some chocolate ganache or buttercream, and add a touch of icing sugar, rum, and melted butter. Mold the mixture into balls, chill them, and coat them in melted dark chocolate. Voilà! You’ve created a brand-new delight that’s sure to impress.

MotherBee’s Chocolate Moist Cake Recipe


• All-purpose flour - 1 1/4 cup

• Corn starch - 3 tablespoons

• Cocoa powder - 1 cup

• Baking soda - 1 teaspoon

• Baking powder - 1/2 teaspoon

• Salt - 1 teaspoon

• Liquid milk (warm) - 1/2 cup

• All-purpose cream - 1/4 cup

• White vinegar - 1 tablespoon

• Whole Eggs - 2 pieces (medium size)

• Dulce de leche - 1/4 cup

• Coconut oil - 1/2 cup

• Vanilla - 2 teaspoons

• Instant Coffee – 2 teaspoons

• White granulated sugar - 2 cups

Cooked corn starch – 1 tablespoon corn starch cooked in 3/4 cup water until thick (cool down to at least 4C)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 150°C and line three 9-inch round pans, set aside.

  2. Sift all-purpose flour, cornstarch, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt three times into a clean bowl, then set aside.

  3. Mix warm milk and cream together, then add white vinegar and leave the mixture to curdle for 15 minutes.

  4. Dissolve instant coffee in the curdled milk and cream mixture.

  5. Add eggs, dulce de leche, coconut oil, and vanilla to the coffee-curdled milk-cream mixture, and mix well until smooth.

  6. Prepare the cooked starch by mixing cornstarch and cold water, then cook in medium heat until the mixture thickens. Remove from stove and cool down to at least 4C, then set aside.

  7. Mix cooked starch together with the rest of the liquid mixture, then add all of the white granulated sugar to the liquid mixture. Mix on slow speed until sugar is fully dissolved.

  8. Add the sifted dry powder mix and continue mixing on the slowest speed until the mixture is homogenous and smooth (at least 3 minutes). Avoid overmixing to prevent gluten from developing.

  9. Pour batter into the previously lined pans, dividing it equally into the three pans.

  10. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 30-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.

  11. Cool cakes in the cake pan covered with baking paper to keep the moisture inside.

  12. Refrigerate the cake for 3 hours or more.

Chocolate Ganache


• Dark chocolate – 2 cups

• Thick cream – 1 cup

• Vanilla – 1 teaspoon

• Butter, melted – 1 tablespoon


  1. In a thick casserole, heat the cream up to 65°C, then remove from the stove.

  2. Pour the heated cream into the chopped dark chocolate, ensuring all chocolates are well submerged in the cream. Set it aside for 2-4 minutes.

  3. Slowly stir the chocolate and cream to completely melt the chocolate in the heated cream.

  4. Add melted butter and vanilla into the chocolate ganache, then stir slowly until homogenous and smooth.

  5. Refrigerate the ganache for 30 minutes or until it is thick enough to ice the cake.

Cake Assembly

  1. Remove cakes from the pan and remove the baking paper lining.

  2. Put one cake onto a cake board, then spread 1/2 cup of dulce de leche in the middle and spread it evenly.

  3. Add another cake on top of the first layer, then spread another 1/2 cup of dulce de leche on top of the second layer and spread it evenly.

  4. Put another cake on top to complete the cake layers. Chill the filled cake for 30 minutes.

  5. Ice the cake with chocolate ganache. Spread 1 cup on top of the cake and spread it evenly.

  6. Ice the sides of the cake with another cup of chocolate ganache, sealing the sides and smoothing out the edges.

  7. You can top it with chocolates on top or decorate the sides with whatever decorations you want to add.

  8. Refrigerate the cake and serve as required.

Shelf Life and Storage

MotherBee’s Chocolate Moist Cake can be stored in the refrigerator for 5-7 days, ensuring its delightful taste stays intact.

The Science Behind the Magic

The addition of cooked starch acts as a binder, allowing the mixture to absorb more moisture. Pre-gelled starch also helps trap that extra moisture during baking and cooling, preventing the product from drying quickly and slowing down the staling process.
