Some good friends and I are very big fans of cream puffs and we made a cream puff “cake” for a celebration we were having! We used some homemade whipped cream, cream puffs, strawberries, blueberries, and topped it off with chocolate covered strawberries! It was very tasty!
The chocolate cake was easy and simple but who doesn’t love a good chocolate cake? Here is the recipe:
1 cup margarine
1 3/4 cups white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups milk
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×13 inch pan. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
For my frosting, I used the same recipe as the Vanilla Cupcakes with Rich Chocolate frosting. It is one of my favorites!
Both cakes were a success! Thanks to: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/best-moist-chocolate-cake/?scale=12&ismetric=0
