Every year my husband requests a traditional Butter Cake with Chocolate Frosting for his birthday. Immediately I started looking up Butter Cake recipes... but alas... he wanted the boxed cake mix...
Oh man, I was so excited to bake a Butter Cake from scratch! Oh well, maybe next time...
The recipe I had my eye on was one that I found on Tasty Kitchen. Oooohhh, it looked good! I know you're just sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for me to let you in on the recipe...
...... am I right?
OK, well... it's a Kentucky Butter Cake by Laurie @ Simply Scratch and you can find the recipe HERE.
I did, however, manage to frost his cake with a homemade chocolate frosting. Chocolate frosting has to be my all-time favorite frosting...... besides cream cheese...... and German Chocolate...... and Vanilla Buttercream...
Alright, alright.... I have many "all-time favorite" frostings.
So, if you want an oh so chocolaty chocolate frosting... please, please, please... try this one out.
You'll be lickin' the bowl clean... I guarantee it.
