This is my favorite buttercream frosting recipe! I use it daily. And to make this frosting even better, you can use this frosting as a base for any flavor of frosting you’re making. So you can add a ganache to make a chocolate frosting. Lemon extract and yellow color to make a fresh lemon, or peppermint for a mint frosting.. the possibilities are endless!!!! So go give this frosting a try and let me know what you think!!

Chocolate Cake Recipe
Bake Temp: 350°F
Bake Time: 28-32 minutes for 6” cake
35-40 minutes for 8” cake
2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 cups granulated sugar
3 large eggs (egglands best)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup of Semisweet Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven to 350°F
Prepare cake pans with non stick spray. (My favorite brand is “BAKERS JOY”. You can find it at any grocery store in the baking isle). Set aside.
Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together oil and sugar on medium speed. Once mixed, add in the eggs, and vanilla.
Scrape bowl before moving on to next steps.
Turn the mixer on and slow speed and add in your dry ingredients. Once you have all of your dry ingredients mixed in add in the milk and the chocolate chips.
Mix on medium speed for about one minute or until combined.
Divide the batter between your baking pans.
Fill your pans about 1/2-3/4 full.
**DO NOT FILL TO THE RIM**
Bake cakes for about 28-40 minutes (depending on cake size) or until your cake is full, and holds its shape after you touch it.
Let your cake cool for about 20 minutes IN CAKE PAN.
Once cooled, cut the top off your cake put your cake on a cake board, and place the cake in the freezer for about 3 to 5 hours.
Once your cake is frozen and stiff, you can start filling it with your frosting.
Layer your cake and fill with about 1-1 1/2 Cups of frosting per layer.
Crumb coat your cake.
Put in freezer for about 30 minutes.
Put on final layer of frosting, and decorate how you prefer.
Now go bake a cake and enjoy it!!!!
