The quote above is quite fitting for me. I LOVE chocolate! Some of you were wondering about the frosting I used on hubby's birthday cake so I will share that along with the chocolate cake... cuz it's just the BEST chocolate cake I have ever had. The recipe came from my mother-in-law. Hope she doesn't mind me sharing it! :)
Lazy Crazy Cake & Frosting
2T apple cider vinegar
Bake at 350 for 20-25min. (It actually takes about 35 min in my oven... so just keep checking on it so it doesn't get over done.)
Now for the 7 minute white frosting
2 egg whites
1 1/2c sugar
1/3 c cold water
1/2t cream of tarter
Stir in double boiler. Beat mixture until it stands in peaks. (use a hand mixer) Add vanilla.
Spread on cake and eat it up!
*Just a note, if you don't eat up the white frosting fairly soon within a couple days it will start to get a little crunchy and I'm not at all for crunch in my foods. Yeah, I'm kinda funny. So if I just make this cake for my little family I usually opt for a fudge frosting... and that is sooo good too!
Here's that recipe:
1 1/2c sugar
6oz chocolate chips
Boil sugar, butter and milk one minute. Add choc. chips, stir until melted.
If you make the recipe into cupcakes, its going to be real hard to eat just one! Enjoy!
