I honestly believe that the frosting was a bigger hit than the cake was. Ha. And as promised, here is the Chocolate Buttercream recipe that goes with the Chocolate Cake.
1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa (I used a half/half mix of unsweetened and dark)
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 cups of powdered sugar
1/2 cup of milk (I used 1%)
See, this recipe was SUPER simple. Don't like chocolate?! What is wrong with you? Just kidding. You can find a recipe for vanilla buttercream here.
Okay, so I know I've been posting A LOT of Chinese/Asian food recipes lately. Well, tomorrow's post is gonna be General Tso's Chicken. However, as I was discussing food with my best friend yesterday, she mentioned how much she wanted to cook more and how much she loved Mexican food. Well, Saturday she'll get her Mexican food blog post wish. Ha. She and her family don't eat a lot of beef, and this recipe can easily be used for chicken. I'm making shredded beef tacos. They already smell delicious in the slow cooker behind me. Mmmm....
