Vanilla-Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Frosting



It has been more than 3 months now since I have posted anything here,its just because of mere laziness.Summer activities with my preschooler was making me tired, so I prefered to relax during the free time doing nothing.My boy has turned 3 last week and I baked a cake which everyone loved,so I thought I should share the recipe to my friends too.I made this cake for his party so it was quite big, since I have made this cake (in a small tin )several times this recipe is for a a smaller cake.

Ingredients

Flour - 1 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Unsalted Butter(softenend) - 1/2 cup
Egg -2
Baking powder - 1tsp
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
Cocoa powder - 2 tbs
Milk - 1/2 cup


For frosting


Double cream - 100ml
Dark chocolate - 100gm
Butter - 25gm
Honey - 3/4 tbs

Preparation


Preheat the oven to 180 degree centigrade.
In a mixing bowl beat butter and sugar together.Crack the eggs in and beat again.Add flour,baking powder,baking soda,vanilla extract and beat again.Add milk slowly and beat until milk is poured completely.Now pour 3/4 th the white batter to the cake tin.Add 2 tbs of cocoa powder to the remaining batter and mix well.Pour the cocoa batter to white batter and incoporate it into white one,but dont mix it completely.Bake the cake for 35 - 40 mins until the tooth pick inserted comes out clean.Let the cake cool down.

For frosting
In a saucepan pour the double cream and jsut before it starts to boil turn off the flame and add chocolate,butter and honey and mix .Spread the frosting to the cake.If you like to decorate the cake you can sprinkle chocolate strands, or shavings or grated chocolate on the top of the frosting.
