CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH DELICIOUS BUTTERCREAM FROSTING RECIPE
INGREDIENTS FOR THE CHOCOLATE CAKE
½ cup (50 grams) unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup (240 ml) boiling hot water
1⅓ cups (175 grams) all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup (113 grams) margarine
1 cup (200 grams) granulated white sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 190C. Line a round baking tin with greaseproof paper.
In a small bowl stir the boiling hot water and cocoa powder until smooth. Let cool to room temperature.
In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and set aside.
In another bowl, beat the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy using a hand mixer or whisk.
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until smooth while scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in the vanilla extract.
Add the flour mixture and beat only until incorporated, then add the cooled cocoa mixture and stir until smooth.
Pour the cake mixture in the baking tin and bake for about 40 minutes or until risen, springy to the touch, and a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool. Once the cake has completely cooled, frost with icing.
INGREDIENTS FOR THE PEANUT BUTTER FROSTING
180g peanut butter
100g icing sugar
Beat the margarine and peanut butter until smooth and creamy using a hand mixer or whisk (for about 1 minute). Add the icing sugar little at a time and beat until it is light and fluffy (for about 2 minutes).
Increase the speed to medium-high and beat until frosting is smooth and glossy (about 2 -3 minutes).
Decorate the top of the cake with cake sprinkles & serve!
