white (but really orange) cake with chocolate frosting.
it’s super simple if you’ve got four good arms for some hella mixing. we found that it didn’t have quite the kick we want from a cake. looking into adding some coffee or nuts next time around.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 butter (room temperature and soft)
- 2 eggs at room temperature also
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 1 and 1/4 cup flour
- 1 and 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup milk
mix the butter and sugar until your body hates you (3 minutes is my limit). beat the eggs in one at a time. add the vanilla (and any food colouring is optional. we prefer ORANJE.)
stir in the flour with the baking powder and slowly slowly add to the wet mixture. when it’s pretty much mixed in*, add the milk so that it’s gets to that comfortably thick but not crazy thick batter level.
pour into one 9 inch baking pan. times everything by two if you want a layer cake, but that’s obvious. don’t be simple, butter the pan before and all that junk. oven at 350 for 25 minutes. that is it.
*a note on over-mixing: IF ANYONE KNOW THE FUCK THAT MEANS PLEASE DROP ME A HINT.
