Prep

Prep your baking dish – recommend parchment paper to line the spring pan or dish, grease the sides and flour. 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup HIGH quality cocoa 
  • 2-3 cups bread flour 
  • 1/3 cup corn starch 
  • 2 Pete & Gerry’s Organic eggs at room temperature
  • approx 3/4 stick of butter melted or 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1.5 cups butter milk, milk, eggnog or half and half (use anything you have in the house, including condensed or evaporated milk)
    warm brewed coffee or instant coffee
  • 1.5 cups sugar ( organic cane , I prefer sugar beet sugar)
  • 2-3 teaspoons of baking soda or powder
  • 2-3 tbs vinegar
  • vanilla
  • Kahlua liquor, Chambord Liqueur
  • Optional: mixed berries

Notes

When the cake is semi frozen, it is way easier to cut and fill.

Directions

  1. Mix fluids together ( coffee, milk, vinegar, butter )
  2. Beat eggs and sugar until white and foamy.
  3. Add dry ingredients. Whisk fluids into the dough until the batter looks right. It should be sort of like pancake batter.
  4. Bake at 360 until toothpick comes out dry.
  5. Freeze the cake for about 1 hr when cool, with parchment attached. 

    Whipped cream – cocoa, heavy cream, powdered sugar.

    Filling : sour cream, cocoa, honey
