How to Make Bonnie Butter Cake With Mocha Frosting

Step-by-Step

  • 1Heat oven to 350F. Grease & flour 3- 8-inch cake pans, set aside. In my standing mixer I beat butter,sugar,eggs and vanilla for about 5 minutes at high speed until fluffy.
  • 2Sift the flour,baking powder,and salt in a medium bowl. In 4 add in's start with your dry mix and then add in alittle milk, continue this and end with your dry ingredients. Blend on low speed just until smooth. Divide the batter evenly in the three pans.
  • 3Bake layers 30-35 minutes. When cakes test done with toothpick in center pull out and let cool for 10 minutes in pans. Remove from pans let cool completely and ther ready for frosting.
  • 4Frosting-mix your butter with mixer (handheld is good) and pour in very hot strong coffee (start with 2 Tbsp.)to melt butter slightly. Then add powderd sugar,cocoa,and salt beat until creamy & smooth. Can add more coffee if needed. I just frost between layers and on the top and leave sides unfrosted,(my preference) Enjoy!
