A request for the cake recipe? I'm flattered~! Here you are - and Aliceson, I haven't forgotten I owe you a blog for which I was tagged. I'm being slugly on my last day off.
I made this with homemade chocolate fudge frosting, but you can use whatever kind you like.
2 cups cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
½ cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla
¾ cup milk
Preheat oven to 350 F. Use a little olive oil on bottom of 9 x 13 pan to prevent sticking.
In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt with a wire whisk.
Mix butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla and mix until completely combines. Slowly add flour alternately with milk.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool before frosting.
And a tip for the uninitiated: cats don't like frosting!
Chocolate fudge frosting
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup Hershey's cocoa
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup milk
Melt butter. Stir in cocoa. Alternately add powdered sugar and milk, beating to spreading consistency. Makes about 2 cups of frosting. (Unless you sneak some.)
