Whipped chocolate buttercream birthday cake recipe


Cake For 2 Layers

1 1/2 cups baking flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup oil
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup coffee, hot

Whipped Chocolate Buttercream For 2 Layers

3 cups butter (salted and softened)
3 cups powdered sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
tsp vanilla extract
tbs whipping cream


For the cake:

·         Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
·         Grease 2 9-inch cake pans ensuring that you line with paper, and then butter/spray with cooking spray.
·         In an average size bowl mix the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, unsweetened cocoa powder, and baking powder and put aside.
·         In a small bowl use a hand held mixer to beat together the eggs, buttermilk, yogurt, oil and vanilla until smooth.
·         Gradually add the dry ingredients to the damp ingredients with the mixer on low until no clumps of flour are left. Add hot coffee and mix until combined properly.
·         Divide the batter into two and pour into the 2 cake pans and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the tops are just set and no longer wiggly in the center. Remove and cool on a rack for five minutes, then run a knife around the edges of the pan. Take hold of 2 large flat plates, line them with wax or paper and turn upside down the cakes onto the paper lined plates. Cover them and let them cool completely before frosting.

For the Frosting:

·         Add butter and powdered sugar to a small bowl and use a hand held mixer and beat together for about 4 minutes or until the butter is light and fluffy. Add the cocoa powder and vanilla and continue beating, scrapping down the sides until there are no streaks of white. Add the 4 tablespoons of the cream and beat the frosting for 2-4 minutes or until light and fluffy.
·         Place 1 layer, flat side up, on a plate or cake stand. With a knife or spatula, butter the top with frosting. Place the second layer on top, rounded side up, and butter the frosting uniformly on the top and sides of the cake. You can then decorate with chocolate curls, sprinkles, or anything else that you wish to use.
