Chocolate Cake from Scratch

When was the last time you make cake from scratch?

Here is my simple recipe that anyone can make with the things you have at home.

1/2 cup Butter softened
1 1/3 cup Sugar
2 Eggs
1 Teasp. Vanilla Extract
1 cup milk
1/2 cup apple sauce (you can skip this but it makes it a little more moist)
1 teasp. salt
1 teasp. baking soda
1 teasp. baking powder
2 cups organic flour
3 tablesp. Cocopowder

Set the oven to 350F and then in a bowl combine the ingredients as they are listed and make sure that they are mixed well between each ingredient. When well combined, grease a 8×13 pan. and poor the batter in. Bake it for 30 min. While the cake is baking make the the icing.

1/2 cup butter softened.
1 egg
1 teasp. vanilla extract
3 tablesp. coco powder
3 tablesp. brewed coffee (I use left over from that morning)
2 cups powdered sugar

In a bowl add the ingredients as they are listed until you get to the powdered sugar.  Just keep adding the powdered sugar until the consistency is pretty thick. You might need more or less depending on how big your egg was.

Let your cake cool somewhat before applying the icing. Sprinkles can be added for fun.

 Then enjoy!
