Double Chocolate Cake

Chocolate cake is doubly delicious when made with our PC Decadent Chocolate Cake Mix and our PC The Decadent Chocolate Bar with Cookie Pieces! The chocolate-vanilla frosting makes just enough to top the two layers- don’t spread over the sides.

Cooking Instructions

1

Preheat oven (20 minutes) to 325°F (160°C). Lightly grease two 8-inch round (1.2 L) cake pans and line bottoms with parchment paper.

2

In large bowl, combine cake mix, butter, milk and eggs. Using electric mixer, beat on low speed for 30 seconds until moistened. Scrape side of bowl. Beat on medium speed for 1-½ minutes. Pour into prepared pans, dividing evenly; smooth tops.

3

Bake on middle oven rack for 25 to 27 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove cakes from pans, discard parchment paper and cool completely before icing.

4

Make Frosting: In large bowl and using electric mixer beat butter until light and fluffy. Scrape side of bowl. Add 1 cup (250 mL) of the icing sugar; beat until combined. Beat in remaining icing sugar, vanilla and salt until very light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in sour cream. Beat in 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the chocolate.

5

Place one cake layer on cake plate. Spread top with half of the frosting. Top with other cake layer; spread top with remaining frosting. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup (50 mL) chocolate.
