One-Bowl Chocolate Buttermilk Cake

Prep: 10mints Bake: 35 to 40 mints Serves:12

Here's a cake that's made for a party. Kids will love the chocolate chip icing, but this cake is also delicious served plain.......

1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1 1/2 sticks (6 ounces) butter,cut up and softened
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
Fluffy Chip Frosting (Recipe follows)
  • Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, sift together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Beat in butter with an electric mixer on low speed until mixture is crumbly. Add buttermilk, eggs and vanilla. Increase speed to medium and beat until completely smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn into a well greased 13 x 9-inch pan.
  • Bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Let cake cool in pan on a wire rack. Frost top with Fluffy Chip Frosting


Prep: 5 mints, Cook: 3 to 4 mints Makes: 1 Cup

1 Large egg white
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/8 tsp cream of tarter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
In top of a large double boiler over simmering water, combine egg white, sugar, 2 table spoons water, corn syrup, and cream of tarter. Beat with a hand-held electric mixer on high speed 3 to 4 minutes, or until soft but firm peaks form when beaters are lifted.
Remove from heat and beat in vanilla. Continue to beat until icing is very stiff, about 3 minutes longer. With a rubber spatula, fold in chocolate chips.

Let me take this opportunity to wish my dear brother on his birthday......
