This Calls for Cake!

19 Jul

This is my 200th blog post!  I think that calls for some cake =)

This is the cake Aleah requested for her real Birthday, a “barbie” cake:

a doll squished into the middle of a cake baked in a round bowl

I had bigger plans for her birthday party day.  This cake is so rich a delicious.  I only wish I had my strawberries when I made the cake.

Extreme Chocolate Cake Recipe:

2 cups sugar

1  3/4 cup flour (sorry Courtney)

1 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1  1/2 tsp baking soda

1  1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 eggs

1 cup milk

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup boiling water

Bake in 2, 9 inch pans for 30 minutes

Frosting:

3/4 cup butter

1  1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

5  1/3 cup confectioners sugar

2/3 cup milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

I dusted the top with a bit of confectioners sugar to make it purdy

I didn’t say it was healthy, only EXTREMELY delicious!

    Is there really no flour in the cake? I didn’t see it in the recipe… if so, it’s gluten free and I will have to make one! Yum!

    Can I repost the recipe on my blog if it’s gf? 🙂

      MY BAD! oops, I forgot to add the flour. Sorry Court.
      the frosting is gluten free, does that help?
