  1. Prepare the Biscuit:
    • Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Grease and flour a baking pan.
    • In a bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder.
    • In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar until fluffy. Gradually add the milk and vegetable oil, mixing well.
    • Fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture until just combined.
    • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool.
  2. Make the Chocolate Glaze:
    • In a saucepan, combine the cocoa powder, sugar, and milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens.
    • Remove from heat and stir in the butter until smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. Prepare the Creamy Filling:
    • In a bowl, beat together the sour cream, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and cocoa powder until smooth and creamy.
  4. Assemble the Cake:
    • If the biscuit base has cooled and is firm, slice it horizontally to create layers if desired.
    • Use the milk to moisten the biscuit layers by brushing it over each layer.
    • Spread a layer of the creamy filling over the first biscuit layer, then cover with the second biscuit layer (if you’ve sliced it). Repeat if you have more layers.
    • Pour the chocolate glaze over the top layer, spreading it out to cover the cake completely.
  5. Chill and Serve:
    • Allow the cake to chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving. This will help the flavors to meld and the glaze to set.

Enjoy your homemade Chocolate Delight Cake, a perfect blend of moist biscuit, creamy filling, and rich chocolate glaze!
