I call this my comfort cake because that's the way it makes me feel when I want a treat, but not spend a lot of time making it. I've always just loved a white cake mix with "from scratch" chocolate frosting. Last weekend, we were visiting my brother and his wife, and Sharyn and I were talking about how we loved white birthday cakes. I couldn't wait to get home and make one.
Your favorite white cake mix prepared according to the package directions.
After your cake has cooled, frost with the recipe below.
Bring to a boil:
3 T. cocoa
1 stick butter
7 T. milk
After the above ingredients start boiling, remove from the heat and pour into a medium sized mixing bowl.
1 lb. powdered sugar,sifted (Sometimes it takes a little more powdered sugar and sometimes a little less---just enough to spreading consistency.)
1 tsp. vanilla
Spread on cake.
I hate to admit it, but I ate two and a half pieces of this last night with a glass of milk. But, I will have to say, I felt quite comforted after doing so!
Pin It Now!
