Hot Cocoa Layer Cake
That is the massive, heat, snug sweater of chocolate desserts, if you happen to ask me. The feel of the frosting is so delicate and billowy. It’s finest utilized in massive swirls (cake smoothers needn’t apply). I’d name it quaint as a praise. As a result of the cake layers have that wealthy old-school taste that solely comes with melting butter and chocolate collectively on a range high.
Uncommon prep, however extremely delish chocolate frosting.
The frosting is what actually makes this cake particular. Its preparation is similar to that of creating ingesting cocoa. I used to be virtually tempted to take a sip! I’ve made it a few occasions earlier than, however as a substitute of utilizing it as a cake overlaying, it crammed puffy buttermilk doughnuts. It’s ultra-luxurious!
Vanilla beans are a prized commodity proper now. Due to the expense I save mine for particular events (this frosting). For those who’re out of beans, you should utilize 2 teaspoons of extract as a substitute. Use an enormous pot for cooking the substances, and remember to replenish on cocoa! The frosting alone makes use of 2 complete cups and the cake layers require an extra 3/4 cup.
After cooking the cocoa frosting combination on the range high, pour it right into a 13×9-inch pan and freeze it till stable. I do know this may appear unusual, however there’s a technique to the insanity.
The last word wealthy cocoa frosting!
