here called for SO much sugar and the frosting called for double the butter I'd add. And complex directions. We made the cake with a TON less sugar than what was called for and it was still so good!
Here's our adapted version.
1 1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup veg oil
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup cocoa powder
1 3/4 cup flour
1 c. buttermilk
3/4 C. boiling water
Beat eggs, sugar and oil for 2 min.. Add in all dry ingredients and buttermilk. Mix. Add the boiling water and mix well. Bake 350 for 30-35 min.
Once cool, mix the filling in separate bowl and spread in between the layers:
1/2 can sweetened condensed milk.
For frosting, mix in separate bowl and spread over the layers:
1 stick butter
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups powdered sugar
splashes of milk or heavy cream to get the perfect consistency.
Kids loved it!
