Picture1wcwdw

For my birthday, I did not go out and buy a cake already made, or bought a cake mix and frosting already made.  Of course, I was going to make my cake from scratch!  So on this Aspie Recipes post, I am going to show you how I made a homemade chocolate cake, with white frosting!  Here’s what you need!

  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup water

For the frosting.

  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 6 cups confectioners sugar
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix together sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.

3.  Grease and flour a cake pan, pour batter into the cake pan, and bake in 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes.  Check with a toothpick to see if it’s done.

4.  While cake is cooling, mix together the softened butter, confectioners sugar, milk, and vanilla extract.

5.  Since I used one pan, cut the cake in half.  Cover the cake with frosting!
