So, like most women, I'm always on the hunt for amazing chocolate cake. I came across this recipe when it was posted on a Link Up Party on It's a Keeper from Suburbs Mama I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but it looks incredible!
Ultra Chocolate Cake
1 stick unsalted butter
2/3 cup Hersheys cocoa
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Melt butter in microwave, stir in cocoa, alternately add powdered sugar and milk, beating on med speed. Stir in vanilla extract. refrigerate until ready to use.
Chocolate whipped cream frosting:
8 oz heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup of baking cocoa
2 Tb Sugar
Beat cream until peaks form, add vanilla, sugar and cocoa. Refrigerate until ready to frost the cake
Assemble the cake with the frosting and filling. I also sprinkle walnuts between each layer of cake. I also drizzle with some melted chocolate on top of the cake, but this is optional. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
I'm half afraid that when I make this Tad, who's much more of an ice cream guy, will make me eat the whole thing by myself. And I'm half afraid he'll want some of it too :)
