Chocolate Overload Cake

Warning: Do not make this cake unless you really, really, really love chocolate.

Chocolate Overload Cake
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 squares unsweetened baking chocolate, melted
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk (can make it with 1 tbsp vinegar, then add milk to make desired amount, let set for a few minutes to thicken)
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Combine all ingredients. Mix on low for one minute, then on high for 5 minutes. Pour batter into two 9 inch round, greased and floured pans. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Assemble and frost when cooled.

Spoon-licking chocolate frosting

  • 12 oz bag of semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk

Melt chocolate chips and shortening together. (Using double boiler or microwave) Do not overheat. Add sugar and milk, stirring until fully combined and fluffy. Use to fill and frost cake. Make sure you leave some in the bowl. Let the spoon fighting begin.
