It's been 2 months now that I'm always craving for a chocolate cake. Hubby don't like if I eat a lot of sweets especially chocolate cake and chocolate ice cream. I have a gallon of chocolate ice cream in the freezer. A month ago, I made a chocolate cake. It's a simple one that i made the recipe. Too bad, I didn't write it down the recipe.

Last week, I was in Montreal for a week and I was craving for a chocolate cake again. I drove to the grocery store right away and bought the ingredients that i will need for my chocolate cake. I was so happy that I had a successful result. The above photo is the result of what I did.

If you want to do some, here are the ingredients that you will need

3/4 cup Hershey's cocoa
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup dairy sour cream


1 cup butter, softened
1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow cream
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

  1. Beat butter in med bowl on med speed until creamy.
  2. Beat in marshmallow cream.
  3. Blend well.
  4. Beat in powdered sugar and vanilla.
  5. Increase speed to hi and beat for 3 minutes.

1. Heat oven to 350 F. Grease two 9 inches round baking pans. Line bottoms with wax paper; grease and flour paper. Mix cocoa with boiling water in small bowl; stir until smooth. Set aside to cool.

2. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl until fluffy. Add eggs, one at at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla. Gradually add cocoa mixture, beating well.

3. Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt; add alternately with milk and sour cream to batter mixture, beating until blended. Pour batter into prepared pans.

4. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks; carefully peel off wax paper. Cool completely. Spreed frost in the top of the first cake enough to cover the top and put 2nd cake on the top.

Cover the cake with the remaining of the frost and put anything to decorate your cake.
