Recipe Ingredients for Collector's Cocoa Cake

3/4 c cocoa
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Chocolate Buttercream Frosting:
6 tbsp butter or marg. soft ( again I always use Imperial Marg. but butter works great too)
3/4 c cocoa (see note below)
2 2/3 c powder sugar (unsifted)
1/3 c milk
1 tsp vanilla

Recipe Directions for Collector's Cocoa Cake

  1. Cream marg and sugar light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla beat 1 minute medium speed.

  2. Combine dry ingr. (or not I add cocoa and stir in then alternate flour and water)

  3. Add alternating with water to creamed mixture.

  4. Bake 2 - 8" pans 35 -40 at 350

  5. or 9" pans 30-35 min.

  6. Cool 10 min.

  7. Cream butter/marg. then add cocoa and sugar alternating with milk beat to spreading consistency.

  10. *Note on Cocoa variations 1/3 c for light flavor, 1/2 c for medium flavor and 3/4 c for dark flavor.
