Time for Cake

So it's time for dessert and you want a cake that is just right. Why not try a chocolate swril cake? I have never made this cake before because, I am making it up as I go. So cross your fingers.

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)
Brown sugar
Chocolate chips (optional)
Cocoa powder
3 eggs
Baking powder
Baking soda

The Middle:
1/2 cup of sugar
1/4 Chocolate chips (optional)
1 1/2 tablespoon Cocoa powdar

Wet Ingredients:
3 egg yolks
3 egg whites
1 cup of Butter (I used grapeseed oil)
2 cups Sugar
4 teaspoons Vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients:
3 cups of flour
3 taspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons baking soda

How to:
Step one : In a Medium bowl, mix your cocoa powdar and sugar. Put it off to the side.

Step two wet ingredients part 1Seperate 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 2In 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.
