The pan I used for this recipe is a half sheet pan, so everything you see is in double proportions from the original recipe. I also made four types of frosting for this cake and they were all good, but the chocolate frosting was causing fights amongst the adults who didn't get any. It almost got ugly, but fortunately I was able to split a few pieces further and placate everyone.
|eggs, butter, flour, sugar, salt, vanilla, unsweetened chocolate, baking soda and powder|
|weigh your chocolate and sift your dry ingredient except sugar|
|this is where the moisture comes in, boil sugar in water until it dissolves|
|then stir in butter and chopped chocolate and let cool|
|once cool add eggs, then stir in dry ingredients|
|pour into buttered and floured pan and bake|
|it will be barely springy when done|
|now cut out rounds from the vegan cake you made yesterday|
|lego circles - activate|
|then begin to frost with a slightly runny frosting|
|that is the chocolate frosting that really should have been the whole cake|
|here is the green the birthday boy requested|
|and lastly vanilla for those who like the old standby|
|serve to happy boy|
Happy birthday my middlest!
