"Choc" it up, My Dad's Chocolate Cake

03 March 2010

Wanna know what the best cake on earth tastes like?  Heaven!  And guess what, that heavenly recipe is coming right at you like a red hot shooting star!  It is chocolate, but for those of you that love maple, it is in there too, and a hint of almond... and concourses of angels singing from above... sorry got carried away.

I promise, this is one of the best, most delicious  recipes on the planet.  It is a recipe that my dad's mother has been making since she was a newlywed, so it has definitely passed the test of time.  Also, it's history gives me a reason to love it it even more.   And finally,  it is a simple recipe, and you too can make it from scratch!

Dad's Chocolate Cake
2- 3 bread loaf pans or 8 small mini loaf pans

In a bowl mix together:
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1-2 eggs (as desired)
1/4 tsp maple Extract
1/s tsp vanilla

In a separate bowl melt and mix together
1/2 cup butter (1 cube)
2 tsp oil
6 Tbsp cocoa

When chocolate and butter are smooth like above, add them to the first batter and combine.


Now add and incorporate
1/2 cup boiling water

Pour into greased and floured pans
Bake 375
20 minutes for small laves 
25 minutes for large, (or toothpick test it)

Frosting (must accompany this cake!!!)
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp maple extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
6 Tbsp cocoa
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 tsp salt

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. 
Add about a  Tbsp of boiling water at a time and mix to desired consistency. 
(we usually like it to be the thin enough to pour over each piece).

P.S.  We also used this frosting to make cookies.
Prepare the frosting to a thicker consistency,
spread between 2 graham crackers 
then freeze them, and eat when ever you like them, straight from the freezer!

This looks AMAZING! I have a recipe that looks similar, but you make it in a jellyroll pan with Nesle Quick. Thanks for hosting!

Wow, what a tempting cake. I love the small loaves and the drizzeled frosting.

It's time to have another drawing at Stitches-Stuff. I'm at 50 followers and I draw one of them out of a hat. I will be posting some of the surprises. Come by and check it out.
