Come On Up To The House

Chocolate Cake

This is one of the kids favorites. I halved the original recipe as we cannot eat a whole cake. I make this in a 9″ by 9″ square silicone cake pan.

1 1/8 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cups sugar
6 tbsp butter, softened
1/3 cup baking cocoa
2/3 cups water
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 large egg

Fudge Frosting
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 ounces baking chocolate
2 tbsp milk

Preheat the oven to 350oF.

Beat all ingredients (except for the fudge frosting) with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, scraping the bowl. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes.

Bake 40 – 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack.

Frost with the Fudge Frosting recipe above by mixing all frosting ingredients together. Serve to your very grateful family or friends.
