"Mounds" Cake

 Audra and I made this cake a couple weeks ago. I loved the idea of the cake but the original recipe from 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.

Mounds cake

2 eggs
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.
7oz coconut.

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!
