Grand Fudge Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
« on: June 29, 2008, 10:25:33 PM »
This is a decadent and heavenly chocolate cake.  Be sure to grease your pans well.  I use nonstick pans and grease them pretty good, this is a thick batter.

Grand Fudge Cake

2 cups flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salf
1 cup butter, softened
1-3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
1-1/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350.  Grease & flour 2 9-inch round pans.

Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda & salt.

Cream butter & sugar.

Add vanilla & eggs, one at a time, beat well between additions.

Alternate adding flour mix & milk, ending with flour.

Mix until smooth.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.


I do a double of this frosting, cause I tend to slather it on pretty thick on my cakes.

I just had an extremely decadent chocolate cake for my birthday(enough chocolate to last me awhile), but I might have to try that recipe sometime.   :)

Just be sure to really grease the pan well.  I use non-stick pans and heavily grease them.  Otherwise it's so thick I end up breaking one of the layers in half.  I almost always end up making two cakes.  :)

my daughter made this a while back...was delicious!  But we made it with no frosting, and in a bundt pan (our rounds pans went MIA in the move), and it was so rich.  Can't imagine how it would be with frosting!

This sounds delicious!  I'm taking a cake decorating class and I have to bring in another cake this week.  I think, it might be this one.  Last week was yellow cake with white buttercream icing.

Finally -- something that doesn't need Lime Jello!

But I gained 3 pounds just reading the ingredient list...

Happy Belated Birthday!  No Lime Jello with that ?   :-)
