Chocolate Layered Cake
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling
Very good. I did double the recipe and pour it into 2 - 9 inch pans. This recipe's name has changed by TofH from Chocolate Layer Cake to Layered Cake (I wish TofH would stop changing names, as it makes it difficult to find and review recipes).
I tried this cake form a hard cover book Cooking for one or two and the amount of baking powder was 1 teaspoon and the baking soda was also 1 teaspoon and that didn't seem right. I have it right now.
I used the cake recipe (doubled) in a shaped cake pan; I didn't make the frosting as I needed white to color. But this cake is amazing! Very moist and tender and cuts beautifully. I used soy milk because of a dairy allergy. This will be my go-to cake recipe for decorated cakes. I would also l like to try it with this frosting recipe.
This cake and frosting is soooo good. You wont be disappointed!!!!
I made 2 9 inch rounds instead of cutting one in half. Was very good, icing is one of the best I have had yet that doesn't call for cream cheese or milk.
This is a great recipe when a full size cake isn't needed. I baked mine in an 8" square pan & then cut in half & stacked to frost. The frosting recipe is a keeper. I used a bit of warmed milk instead of water though. Thanks for sharing this one with us!
Pvw - You do not have the info correct - the one layer 9" is cut in two and actually makes what would be half of a regular cake, which is then cut into 4 servings. The cake and frosting is very good and just right for our downsized 'empty nest'!robring
This cake is excellent as well as the frosting.Di
If I have the information correct this is a 9" cake divided in 4 pieces? Who in their right mind would eat that big a slice when the calories are over 1000. No cake is that good.
This is the absolute best chocolate cake I have ever eaten. I had to make two. The frosting was excellent also, I used milk instead of water thought. Anyone from Utah, this is just like Magelbys signature chocolate cake.
