Servings: 1
Categories: Cakes / Chocolate / Desserts

250  g  sugar
55  g  cocoa
120  ml  boiling water
120  g  shortening
2    eggs
10  ml  vanilla
200  g  sifted cake flour
5  ml  baking soda
150  ml  buttermilk

1 . Preheat oven to 175 C . Combine 100 g sugar with cocoa and boiling water, and cook over a low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is glossy. Cool. 2. Cream the shortening and eggs with the remaining sugar. Add the cocoa mixture and the vanilla. 3. Add the dry ingredients and the buttermilk alternately. 4. Bake in 2 greased layer pans at 175 C for 30-35 minutes. 5. Frost the cake with your favorite frosting (see note below). Author's Notes: This was our wedding cake. For the frosting on our wedding cake, we used the chocolate mousse filling described in MOUSSE-CHOC-1. You can also make this as a single-layer cake. Just bake it a few minutes longer, as it is thicker. D
