Chocolate Cake with Fudgy Chocolate Frosting

I celebrated a birthday over the weekend with this killer chocolate cake and fudge frosting. This cake definitely helps to ease you into being another year older! 

For the cake:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup strong brewed coffee, cooled
  • 1/2 cup whole milk

1. Preheat oven to 350º. In a medium bowl sift flour, cocoa, salt, baking soda, and baking powder – set aside. In a small bowl, combine coffee and milk – set aside.

2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until well combined. Add the eggs, one at a time. Then alternate the flour mixture and the coffee-milk combo in three additions.

3. Pour batter into two 9″ round cake pans that have been greased and floured. Bake for 25 to 28 minutes, test with a toothpick. Let cool on a rack for 10 minutes before removing from pan.

For the frosting:

  • 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
  1. In a large bowl, melt the butter and add the chocolate chips and stir until melted. If they’re not completely melted, return bowl to the microwave for 30 seconds, and stir.
  2. With an electric mixer, add the sour cream, vanilla extract, then the confectioners sugar one cup at a time – mixing well after each addition.
