    Karen=^..^='s Note:

    This chocolate cake is absolutely thee best we have ever had. It is so moist and rich, I never make anything else (unless I am short on time :) The frosting recipe included goes perfectly with this cake, but you can use any frosting you like. Try this once and you'll see why I call it "The Only Chocolate Cake Recipe You'll Ever Need"!! Adding 2/18/06: I want to note that I recently used sweetened whipped heavy cream with vanilla and it was just as fabulous as the frosting recipe listed, plus much easier. I also used hazelnut coffee in the cake and it added even more of a little extra something!

    Cake

    Frosting

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 325°F.
    2. 2
      In a large mixing bowl, sift together dry ingredients. Add oil, coffee and milk and mix at medium speed for 2 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla and beat 2 more minutes. Expect batter to be thin.
    3. 3
      Pour into a 9" x 13" greased and floured pan or 2- 9" round pans. Bake 9 x 13 pan for about 45 minutes or 9" pans for about 30 minutes. Cool in pans for about 15 minutes and then cool completely on racks.
    4. 4
      While cake is cooling make the icing: Combine the milk and flour in a saucepan and cook over low heat until thick, whisking constantly. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
    5. 5
      In a medium bowl, beat butter, shortening, sugar and vanilla until creamy. Add chilled milk and flour mixture and beat for 10 minutes. Frost cooled cake and enjoy! The frosting sounds intimidating, but it is worth it! By the way, for some reason, we prefer this cake chilled, right out of the refrigerator. The rich chocolate and cool frosting just seem to taste best this way.

      The cake had an intense chocolate taste, was deliciously moist and not too sweet. I used two round baking tins instead of one and after 30 minutes at 160C the cakes were not yet done. Next time, I'll bake them for 35-40 minutes at 180C.

      I made this for a co-workers 18th birthday and everyone loved it. Very moist and chocolaty. The frosting was also very good with a nice texture and not overly sweet. I did add semi-sweet chocolate morsels to the frosting while I was stirring the flour and milk together over med. heat. Came out tasting very good.
