Suck it, Betty Crocker Cake

1 3/4  Cups all-purpose flour
3/4  Cup cocoa powder
2  tsp. baking soda
1  tsp. baking powder
3/4  tsp. salt
1/2  Cup oil
2  Cups sugar
2  Large eggs
1  tsp.  vanilla extract
1  Cup buttermilk
1  Cup strongly brewed coffee

Grease and flour baking pan(s) and set aside. Preheat oven to 350° F.

In a medium-sized bowl sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt; set aside.

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat together oil and sugar until fluffy, about 1 minute.

Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined, about 2 minutes. Beat in buttermilk and coffee until combined.

Reduce mixer speed to low and gradually beat in flour mixture until just combined.  Batter will be very thin.

Pour batter into prepared pan(s)* and bake per the following or until the cake no longer jiggles in the pan and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

DO NOT OVER-BAKE.

Cupcakes:

Line muffin tins with paper liners and spray with cooking spray.  Fill paper lined cupcake tins half full.  Bake 12-15 minutes. Makes approximately 36 cupcakes.

8-9” Round:

Fills three pans.  Do not try to fit all of the batter into two.  Bake 20-25 minutes.

Bundt or 13×9 Pans:

Fill pan 2/3 full.  Use excess batter to make cupcakes.  Bake 30-40 minutes.

Cool in pan for 10 minutes then remove from pan – do not allow the cakes to cool completely in the pans or they will be difficult to remove.  If you need to handle the cakes beyond turning them out, use waxed paper as the cake will stick to your hands.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

12  oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
8  oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
8  Tbsp. butter, at room temperature
3  Cups powdered sugar
6  Tbsp. cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
1  Cup sour cream

Melt chocolate chips over a double-boiler or by microwaving and stirring in 30-second intervals.  Set aside until cool to the touch, stirring occasionally.

Sift together the powdered sugar, cocoa powder and salt then set aside.

Beat cream cheese and butter on medium speed with an electric for 3-4 minutes or until fluffy.

Gradually add the powdered sugar mixture and beat for about a minute or until thoroughly incorporated.

Add the cooled chocolate and sour cream and continue to mix at medium-low speed until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

Add powdered sugar – 1/4 cup at a time – to thicken if necessary.

We have added chopped nuts and/or coconut to the top of the cake.

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
