Chocolate Dobash Cake

Holly Davis


This is NOT my recipe, I found it on the internet, for a friend for her birthday. She is from Hawaii and she always has this cake on her birthday. It is really moist, and the icing/frosting isn't too sweet. Great Cake!!

How to Make Chocolate Dobash Cake


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 2 8-inch pans.

    Beat egg whites until frothy; gradually beat in 1/2 cup sugar until stiff.

    Sift together remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa. Make a well in center; add oil and half of milk. Beat until well-blended at medium speed. Add remaining milk and egg yolks; beat until smooth.

    Fold mixture into egg whites. Pour batter into pans and bake 30 to 35 minutes. Cool, then slice each layer in half to make 4 layers.
  2. To prepare frosting: Combine water, sugar, salt and butter in saucepan and bring to boil. Combine cocoa, cornstarch and water; add to boiling mixture and return to boil. Cool completely. Frost between cooled layers, sides and top.
