Chocolaty Chocolate Frosting...

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.

Chocolaty Chocolate Frosting
  • 1 Box of Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Cup of Cocoa
  • 1 Stick of Salted Butter, Softened
  • 8 Tablespoons of Milk
  • 2 Teaspoons of Pure Vanilla Extract
In a medium sized bowl, sift the powdered sugar and cocoa together; set aside. Next, in a large mixing bowl, cream the butter for a few seconds. Gradually add the sifted mixture and the milk to combine. Add the vanilla and beat until creamy. This frosting frosts a two layer cake or 24 cupcakes.
