MOIST, CHOCOLATEY, & PEANUT BUTTERY ! NOW THAT IS CAKE!
This is everything you could want in a Chocolate Cake & to top it off it is SUPER EASY TOO! Chocolatey, MOIST, mixes up in a snap a no fuss or muss cake with excellent results EVERY TIME!
2 Cups Granulated Sugar
1/2 Cup Heaping Baking Cocoa
2 & 1/2 Cup Flour
1/2 TSP Salt
1 Cup Buttermilk, stir in 2 TSP Baking Soda this will foam up so use a deep bowl. IF you do not have Buttermilk use regular milk that you add 1&1/2 TSP Lemon Juice & stir. A GREAT substitute!
1 TSP Vanilla
2 Beaten Eggs
1 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Cup HOT Coffee or use boiling water, I use coffee!
In a LARGE mixing bowl combine sugar, cocoa, flour, salt, & stir. Now add beaten eggs, oil, vanilla, & buttermilk, Beat until all is moist & combined well. Now SLOWLY beat in the hot coffee OR the boiling water. Beat well & batter WILL BE THIN! Grease & flour a 9x13 cake pan. Pour in batter & bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes. Test for cake to be thoroughly baked. It should be moist and not wet! COOL & then frost!
PEANUT BUTTER FROSTING
4 TBS Softened Butter
1 & 1/2 Cups Peanut Butter
Dash of Salt
2 TSP Vanilla
3 Cups Powdered Sugar more or less
1/4 Cup Milk more or less
Beat Butter & Peanut Butter together. Add vanilla, Some of the sugar & some of the milk. Beat well. Now add only enough sugar & milk to get the frosting you desire. I like mine smooth & not so fluffy! Do what works for you! If you like a fluffy frosting add more sugar. Smoother frosting uses more milk! DELICIOUS!
