Buttermilk Chocolate Cake


Yes, i would like to confirm that what you are thinking right now is absolutely spot on! This Buttermilk Chocolate Cake indeed has a generous chocolate frosting on top. A slice is enough to spike up your energy, and i haven't even gone overboard yet with the chocolate frosting like that one time I spread a lot of frosting in between 2 thin layers of a chocolate cake. What's great when you are making your own chocolate cake is that you can be extravagant with the chocolate frosting unlike the store-bought ones where some may not be as chocolaty as you want them to be. What I like about this Buttermilk Chocolate Cake is it doesn't cost much and it's great for beginner bakers, even the kids can do it.

This Buttermilk Chocolate Cake is easy to make because you only have to pour the chocolate frosting on top, and with the help of a teaspoon and a fork, you can already have a simple but lovely chocolate cake. If you want a chocolate with some piped frosting on top, it might be worth your time to check out my Chocolate Birthday Cake Recipe. It might be prettier and spiky. :) I would say however that this Buttermilk Chocolate Cake here is more simple and easy to make.

The Cake

1. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda.

2. Whisk in the sugar.

3. In a bowl, mix evaporated milk and vinegar. Set aside.

4. Cream butter and sugar.

5. Add lightly beaten egg and vanilla extract. Mix.

6. Mix in half of the dry ingredients followed by the milk then mix. Add in the other half of the dry ingredients, mix again.

7. Pour in your hot water then mix till your chocolate cake batter becomes smooth.

8. Bake your chocolate cake in a preheated oven at 350F for 20 minutes.

9. Let cool for a couple of minutes before removing from pan. Then cool completely on a wire rack.

The Icing

10. Chop the chocolate block to bits.

11. Over very low heat, allow the cream to simmer. Do not bring to boil.

12. Pour the cream on the chocolate and sprinkle the coffee. Let sit for about 10 minutes.

13. Stir then let cool for about an hour or more then place in the fridge for about 15 minutes.

Frosting the Cake

14. Pour or drop spoonfuls of about half of your chocolate frosting on top. Spread using the back of a spoon. Place in the fridge to set until chocolate no longer spreads then add the rest of the chocolate making sure the sides are fully covered. Place in the fridge again.

15. Take the chocolate cake out of the fridge once the chocolate icing is fully set. Using the back of a teaspoon, smooth the sides of the cake starting at the base of the cake then move it up to the top edge, spreading the chocolate from bottom to top. Do the same all around the sides of the cake. Then run the tip of a fork on top and create a wavy design. Using a tissue or cloth, clean off the base. Voila! You now have a lovely cake.

16. Blow the candles fast, slice and serve. Enjoy your Buttermilk Chocolate Cake! :)
