3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup baking cocoa
2 t baking soda
1 t salt
2 T vinegar

Be sure to mix well, but don’t over mix! Bake immediately for approx. 30-35 minutes.

Recipe can easily be halved and will take about 25 minutes in an 8×8 pan @ 350 degrees.

After cake is completely cool, you can either add frosting or eat it as is, I for one, love a good cream cheese frosting! :)

For the Cake:
2 tablespoons softened butter, for pans
2 1/4 cups cake flour, plus more for pan
1 cup whole milk, at room temperature
6 large egg whites, at room temperature
1 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
12 tablespoons = (3/4 cup) unsalted butter, cut into 12 pieces, slightly

For the cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour 2 (9 by 2-inch) round cake pans and line bottoms with parchment paper. Whisk together the milk, egg whites, vanilla bean seeds and vanilla extract in a medium bowl. In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. With mixer running at low speed, add the butter, one piece at a time and continue beating until mixture resembles moist crumbs. Add all but 1/2 cup of milk mixture to crumbs and beat at medium speed until the mixture is pale and fluffy, about 1 1/2 minutes. With mixer on low speed, add remaining 1/2 cup of the milk mixture, increase speed to medium and beat 30 seconds more. Scrape sides of bowl and mix for 20 seconds longer. Divide the batter evenly between the cakes pan and smooth the tops using a rubber spatula. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few crumbs attached, 22 to 24 minutes. Cool in the pan on baking rack for 10 minutes. Run a small knife around the side of the pan and invert cakes onto the baking rack, removing parchment paper, and let cool completely, about 45 minutes.

Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese Frosting
1/4 cup (half a stick) softened butter
2 8 oz packages of softened cream cheese,
3 cups powered sugar sifted
1 vanilla bean scraped
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In the bowl of a mixer cream together the butter and cream cheese. Split your vanilla bean down the center and using the tip of your knife scrap out all the beans (this will look more like a paste, Mix together the vanilla beans and vanilla extract, cream cheese. Now begin adding your powder sugar, one cup at a time, mixing well in between . Scrap down the sides of your bowl as needed. The best way to ensure you don’t get any lumps in your frosting is to sift the powder sugar….Enjoy

After a slight hiccup with the frosting, I made what I am dubbing molten hot chocolate cake. Essentially it is an egg & butter free chocolate chocolate-chip cup cake and bitter sweet chocolate butter cream frosting. Its very light & moist!

Scents of Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Image by jazzijava
My version of the coffee shop’s famous Fall / Winter offering – jumbo, spicy pumpkin muffins (with a secret, very Starbucks, ingredient) stuffed with cubes of cream cheese and crowned with pumpkin seeds. They taste awesome – the only problem was that my client wanted cream cheese frosting in the centre, not just cream cheese. Hey, I’ve never eaten a Starbucks muffin, how would I know??

red, white and blueberry muffins

A few of us got together to watch the election results, and I made red, white and blueberry muffins in honor of the night. They were just a totally artificial blueberry muffin mix ("just add water" the package gleefully says), with a raspberry thrown on top.
