INSTRUCTIONS

Cake

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients for the cake until combined.
  • In a smaller mixing bowl, mix all wet ingredients for the cake until combined.
  • Mix the wet and dry ingredients together until combined.
  • Prepare two 8-inch round cake pans, or three six inch pans. Generously butter the sides and use parchment paper on the bottoms to prevent sticking. Evenly pour batter into the pans.
  • Place the pans into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes(ovens and pan size will cause this to vary) until it looks dry and a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Let cool completely before removing from the pan or it will fall apart.
  • Frosting
  • In a large mixing bowl, whip all ingredients together until fluffy with a hand mixer.
  • To assemble: place first cake on work surface and spread frosting over the top. Place second cake layer and add frosting, repeat and smooth frosting over top and the sides.
  • Add any optional toppings, berries, chocolate shavings or chocolate chips that you like.
