Yellow Cake with Chocolate Frosting Recipe

What You Need:
  • 1 Cup Butter (room temp)
  • 1 1/2 Cups White Sugar
  • 8 Egg Yolks
  • 3/4 Cups Milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • 2 Cups Cake Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
How to Make the Cake

Preheat your oven to 350°.  Prepare your round cake pans by lining with parchment paper and spraying with nonstick cooking spray.  Sift together the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and set aside.

In your mixer, combine the butter and sugar and blend until creamy.  Beat in egg yolks one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.  Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing well.  Pour batter into prepared pans.

Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until cooked all the way through.

Original Recipe found here: Yellow Cake
For the Frosting:
  • 2 3/4 Cup Confectioners Sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter
  • 5 Tablespoons Evaporated Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla 
How to Make the Frosting:

In a medium bowl, combine the confections sugar and cocoa powder and mix well.  In a large bowl, cream butter until smooth then gradually beat in sugar mixture alternating with the milk.  Add the vanilla then beat until light and fluffy.  If necessary, adjust consistency by adding more evaporated milk or sugar.

**I should note that I ended up adding 2T evaporated milk to mine to get it to thin out.  Otherwise the frosting was more like fudge**
