What you need:
1 9x13 Cake pan (I grease and flour mine, you can pam it.)
2 Large bowls
2 Medium bowl (this is for your egg whites and filling)
Chocolate chips (optional)
1/2 cup of sugar
1/4 Chocolate chips (optional)
1 1/2 tablespoon Cocoa powdar
3 egg yolks
3 egg whites
1 cup of Butter (I used grapeseed oil)
2 cups Sugar
4 teaspoons Vanilla extract
3 cups of flour
3 taspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons baking soda
Step one : In a Medium bowl, mix your cocoa powdar and sugar. Put it off to the side.
Step two wet ingredients part 1: Seperate your eggs putting your whites in your medium bowl and your yolks in a large bowl. Whisk your whites. (I do mine until they are a bit stiff) Put off to the side.
Step three wet ingredients part 2: In the large bowl with your eggs yolks mix your sugar,butter and vanilla together. Put off to the side.
Step four dry ingredients: In a large bowl add flour, baking powder and
baking soda then mix all together.
Step five putting it together: Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients then add all your wet ingredients slowly. Make sure you mix all together well. DO NOT PUT THE FILLING IN YET!!
Step Six: Put half the batter into the pan spreading it evenly. Then put the filling ingredients on top of it. Next top with the rest of the batter. Put in the oven the oven and cook for 30 to 35 min at 375f
Now you can buy frosting to put on this cake, but I didn't.
1 cup shortening
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar (sifted)
4 tablespoons milk
Beat together shortening and vanilla for 30 seconds medium speed with
an electric mixer. Add 2 cups of powdered sugar a bit at a time while
beating. Then add 2 tablespoons milk. Slowly add in the rest of the
powdered sugar and the rest of the milk until you get the right thickness
for your frosting.
Ok this was an awesome cake. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
