View Full Version : ISO: Buttermilk Chocolate Cake recipe
I cannot remember when this recipe was published in CL, but it is probably the best chocolate cake recipe I've made. I do not know what I did with the recipe (I think it was probably left behind in my last move). Can somebody PLEASE post this for me? I could not find it in the search. Thanks so much!

You're right, this is the best chocolate cake recipe ever. I don't know which issue it is from either, I found it somewhere on the CL website (not through the recipe search) years ago.
(Note: I've New Zealand-ised the ingredients, so I hope you can figure them all out! If you have any problems, let me know and I'll American-ise them)
Buttermilk Chocolate Cake
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 large egg whites
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups sifted flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup water
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Beat sugar, butter and vanilla in a large bowl at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended (about 5 minutes). Add egg whites and egg, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Combine buttermilk, water, and baking soda. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture alternately with buttermilk mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
Pour into a 9-inch round cake pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 180°C (350°F) for 35 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes; remove from pan. Cool completely on a wire rack. Spread glaze over cake.

3 tablespoons cocoa
2 tablespoons skim milk
1/2 teaspoon butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon corn syrup or canola oil
Makes 3/4 cup
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl; stir well with a whisk.

Oh, Paula H...you have made me very HAPPY!!! :D
Thanks so much. I spent a year overseas in London, so I'm a pro with metric. However, it looks pretty darn easy to me. You must have semi-Americanized it for me. I appreciate it.
A million thanks from me in Atlanta, Georgia to you in New Zealand. I hope to visit one day. We may just have to get together and make this cake. YUM!!!

Glad to help out with my favourite chocolate cake MiMo. And as for baking it together - it's a date!
