Ingredients

FOR THE CAKE:

2-1/4 c
cake flour
2-1/2 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
salt
1-1/4 c
sugar
1/2 c
butter, softened
2 large
eggs
2 tsp
vanilla
2/3 c
milk

FOR THE FROSTING:

5 oz
unsweetened chocolate pieces
8 Tbsp
butter
3 c
powdered sugar
6 Tbsp
milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
2
In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the sugar and 1/2 cup butter until it is creamy. Crack eggs into a dish and add vanilla--DO NOT BEAT. Add the eggs to the butter mixture one at a time and mix for two minutes between each egg. Scrape sides of bowl if necessary.
3
Slowly add the dry mixture to the running mixer, making sure each addition is well incorporated. Pour batter evenly into two 8-inch greased and floured cake pans.
4
Bake in a preheated 350ยบ oven for 25 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
5
Cool for 5 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack; allow to cool for 40 minutes on rack.
6
PREPARE FROSTING: In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate, just 10 seconds at a time until just melted. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
7
Add the chocolate and butter to a large bowl and beat with electric mixer until it combines. After 2 minutes add the powdered sugar and the milk. When smooth, frost the cake layers and serve immediately.
