One Bowl Chocolate Cake with Creamy Frosting

I am no stranger to boxed cake mixes. I absolutely adore them and if you’ve followed my blog for a while – you know I love to play around with them and make new creations from them. Every now and then though, I get a hankering for some homemade chocolate cake but I still need it to be easy and not create a ton of dirty dishes to wash up. You picking up what I’m throwing down? This is one of my husband’s favorite cakes and I honestly think he would eat the entire pan if I left him to his own devices.

I had some buttermilk leftover after making my Butter Dip Biscuits and figured I would use it in this recipe instead of just regular milk. Holy cow! I guess it wasn’t really an accident since I deliberately chose to use the buttermilk instead of regular milk – but wow – it took this cake from being good to OMG! The buttermilk made it SO incredibly moist! Momma always said fat makes everything taste better. 😉


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 Eggland’s Best eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup hot water

for the frosting:

  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) margarine, room temperature
  • 4 oz. (1/2 block) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups powdered (confectioners) sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • mini chocolate chips

One Bowl Chocolate CakeDirections:

Preheat oven to 350f degrees. Spray the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix together all the cake ingredients (except the hot water.) This part can be done by hand or with an electric/stand mixer.One Bowl Chocolate Cake

Once combined, gently stir in hot water. This needs to be stirred by hand. If you use an electric or stand mixer, the water may slosh right out of the bowl.

Batter will be thin.

Pour batter into prepared baking dish.

Bake for about 35-45 minutes (until it bounces back to the touch or a toothpick inserted comes out clean.)

Allow to cool completely before making frosting. When ready, in a medium bowl, mix together all the frosting ingredients. This is easiest using an electric mixer.

Spread frosting onto cooled cake.

Sprinkle mini chocolate chips on top.

Cook’s Notes: This cake will need to be kept refrigerated.

Dig in! Seriously, so good!
