My fave Chocolate Cake

>> Saturday, July 26, 2008

Cake has always been my favorite since I was a child, most specially the luscious chocolate cake. Because of my craziness to cakes, I'd able to learn baking when I was in high school. I first baked chiffon cake, which of course tasted and looked awful. But for a reason of experience, that would be OK..lol... Later, my chiffon cake became perfect with the training of my high-school THE teacher.
Since I got addicted to chocolates, I started baking chocolate cakes then. I have tried this recipe, come take a look at the ingredients and its procedure below:
Ingredients
Mix A- Mix below

1 cup Hershey’s Cocoa
2 cups Boiling wanter
(mix the above till smooth then cool)

Mix B- Mix well in plastic

2 3/4 cups sifted all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

- Prepare the rest of the ingredients below
1 cup butter, softened
2 1/2 cups brown sugar
4 pieces eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Procedure
1. Cream butter; add sugar gradually. (Make sure butter is soft when starting to cream). Cream till light and fluffy.
2. At low speed, add eggs, one piece at a time, mixing thoroughly after each addition. Add vanilla.
3. Add Mix B in fourths and Mix A in thirds alternately, ending with Mix B.
4. Bake at 350 F for 25-30 minutes in two or three 9″ round layer pans. Cool 10 minutes. Turn out onto wire rack.
5. Add fudge icing (see recipe below) to the top of one layer then combine the two layers to ice the whole cake.

The Fudge Icing
Ingredients

1 can condensed mik
1/2 cup cocoa
1/4 cup butter

1. Mix milk and cocoa with wire whisk or wooden spoon until smooth. Strain through a wire strainer.
2. Cook mixture in double boiler. Stir occasionally- when thick, remove from fire and add butter thoroughly.
3. Add desired flavor.
4. Use this icing right away. Keep bowl in double boiler to maintain warmth.

Other notes
1. You can decrease the cocoa down to 1/3 cup.
2. Icing starts getting thick when you see thick icing clinging to the sides of the bowl. Continually scrape sides of bowl until icing becomes very thick.
3. Do not over cook or else you will have a fudge candy.

Why don't you try this great recipe so we'll get the same experience, that is, delicious, luscious and mouth-watering cake.. Yummy.....
