Chocolate chocolate chip cake with chocolate frosting

Go Bills!

Today is national comfort food day… But honestly, hasn’t every day kinda been like that since mid March? Nothing like a pandemic to make you crave all sorts of comfort food, as opposed to steamed broccoli. ☺ So today, I present a chocolate chocolate chip cake with chocolate frosting. It’s also my Buffalo Bills game day treat for the 49ers game on Monday Night Football.

Are you ready for some football? Yes, but I wish it was on at 6 pm and not 8 pm!

Couple of notes – this recipe uses buttermilk and cake flour. If you don’t have those, you can make them. For the buttermilk, add 1 tbs of white vinegar or lemon juice to 2 1/4 cups milk and let set for at least 5 minutes. For the cake flour, combine 2 1/2 all purpose flour with 2 tbs and 1 tsp Cornstarch and sift together. You can also use different kinds of chips or add nuts if you want. Remember to preheat your oven to 350 before baking to make sure the temperature is just right.

  • Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp chocolate extract (or vanilla)
  • 2 1/2 cups cake flour
  • 1 cup baking cocoa
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Directions – preheat oven to 350 for 20 minutes. Spray a bundt pan with baking spray. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and extract. Fold in dry ingredients. Mix in buttermilk. Stir in chips. Pour into pan and spread evenly. Bake 30 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into cake comes out with just a few crumbs. Cool completely.

  • Frosting ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 tsp chocolate extract (or vanilla)
  • 3 to 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1-3 tbs heavy cream or milk
  • 1 tbs cornstarch

Directions – Melt butter with water. Remove from heat. Add cocoa, powdered sugar and heavy may need to add more powdered sugar or cream, depending on the consistency you want. I also added some cornstarch to thicken it up a bit. Frost cake and store in covered container
