To go along with my Daily Tip, I thought I would share a recipe that I found for chocolate cake:
2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/3 cups water
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease 13×9-inch baking pan; set aside.
- Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and baking powder in medium bowl. Beat granulated sugar, butter and brown sugar in large bowl with electric mixer at medium-high speed 2 minutes or until light and creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat 2 minutes. Add flour mixture alternately with water; beat just until blended. Pour batter into prepared pan.
- Bake 25 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool in a pan on wire rack.
*Frost as desired
