The Best Chocolate Ice Cream Cake – part 2

Chocolate Ice-Cream Cake recipe

I came across a fabulous, perfect, amazing dark chocolate cake recipe to use for my Ice-Cream Sundae Cake creation.

The cake was very soft, moist, dark and it had a great chocolate flavor.

I covered the cake with a thin layer of chocolate frosting, filled it with a thick slab of Snickers Ice-cream, covered the cake in a Vanilla frosting, and decorated the outside with the Chocolate fudge syrup. Topped it with chopped peanuts, tree scoops of Ice ceam, Maraschino cherries and small sprinkles. It turned out pretty cute and was very delicious.

The Best Chocolate Cake

 

Yield: 8 servings
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons King Arthur Flour Black Cocoa, optional
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup strong black coffee (I used Green Mountain Coffee’s Vermont Country Blend)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour two 9-inch round baking pans or one 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Set aside.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, combine the sugar, flour, cocoa(s), baking soda, baking powder. Mix on low until dry ingredients are thoroughly combined. Add eggs, buttermilk, coffee, oil and vanilla. Beat on medium speed for about two minutes; the batter will be thin. Pour batter evenly into prepared pans.
3. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes for round pans, 35 to 40 minutes for rectangular pan or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely.
4. Frost as desired. I used a simple and delicious Chocolate Buttercream Frosting from Savory Sweet Life. One batch was perfect for this layered chocolate cake.

Notes:

– The Black Cocoa from King Arthur Flour is optional – it simply provides a great depth of flavor and color to the chocolate cake.
– This cake also pairs beautifully with a simple chocolate ganache.
