Recipe : Make this special chocolate cake on weekend, children will be happy
Absolutely! Here's a special chocolate cake recipe that will surely make the children happy:
Ingredients: For the cake:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 and 3/4 cups granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup boiling water
For the chocolate frosting:
- 1 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans or line them with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
Add the eggs, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes until the batter is smooth.
Reduce the mixer speed to low and carefully add the boiling water to the batter. Mix until the water is fully incorporated. The batter will be thin, but that's normal.
Pour the batter evenly into the prepared cake pans.
Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.
Remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
While the cakes are cooling, prepare the chocolate frosting. In a mixing bowl, sift the powdered sugar and cocoa powder together to remove any lumps.
In a separate bowl, beat the softened butter until creamy. Gradually add the sifted powdered sugar and cocoa powder, milk, and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth and creamy.
Once the cakes are completely cooled, place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread a layer of frosting on top.
Place the second cake layer on top and frost the top and sides of the cake with the remaining frosting. You can decorate the cake with additional toppings like chocolate shavings or sprinkles if desired.
Allow the cake to set for a while before serving to let the flavors meld together.
Serve this special chocolate cake to the children on the weekend, and watch their faces light up with joy!
