Grand Fudge Cake
  • 3/4 cup(s) Unsweetened Cocoa
  • 2 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cup(s) sugar
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 cup(s) butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 1/3 cup(s) milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoon(s) vanilla


Directions

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease and lightly flour two 9-inch round cake pans. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, and set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Reduce speed to low, and add vanilla and eggs one at a time, scraping bowl after each addition. Alternately add flour mixture and milk (starting and ending with the flour mixture), while mixing on low speed. Continue to mix until smooth. Pour into prepared pans. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center of cake comes out clean.

Edited to add: I have made this cake several times, and I've always made it in a bundt pan. I bake it for 50 minutes, and it turns out perfect every time!!

Quick questions:

Do you stack the cakes once cool so you have a double layer cake?

Do you make your own frosting? if so, care to share a good recipe for this cake?

I quickly copied and pasted this when I posted it. And, I totally forgot to add that I make it in a bundt pan. I bake it for 50 minutes. I've used just about every kind of frosting that you can think of. Canned and from scratch. My husband swears that it's fine WITHOUT frosting, since it's got the consistancy of a brownie.
