|Black Magic cake with Simple butter creame icing!!|
After 6-7 long months, I found an interesting recipe and an equally enthusiastic friend to explore the joy of baking!
Was joyous over it's success :)
This is a simple and the best recipe! The cake is moist, fragrant, rich and dark... there is no reason to search for a better chocolate cake.
3/4 cup and 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
1 cup white Sugar
1/4 cup and 2 tbsp of unsweetened Cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup strongly brewed coffee
1/2 cup butter milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F. Grease and flour one nine inch cake pan.
2. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the center.
3. Add the egg, buttermilk, coffee, oil and vanilla extract. mix well with a hand mixer for about 2 minutes in medium speed. Batter will be thin, pour this into the prepared pan. (Most of the cake batters are never this thin, the first time we make it, we are doubtful of the best result, but don't worry... this will be good, though the batter is comparatively thinner)
4. Bake at 350 deg F for 30-40 minutes. Insert a toothpick at the center of the cake and it should come out clean. Remove from pan and place on a cooling rack.
The frosting can be totally your choice... Here in the picture posted, i've made the simplest form of frosting.
I have used Butter, icing sugar, milk and vanilla extract. Beat these together, put them in an icing bag, fix appropriate nozzles and get all creative :)
