Emme & Ryder were my helpers when I baked this cake last week, and Emme loves to add all the ingredients. Since she doesn't like 'mayo', she wasn't all that excited about this cake once she knew what was in it. Ryder got to lick the beaters...Emme said she would pass. However, she loved the cake in the end (even had two pieces) and promised not to tell Uncle Kris it had mayo in it! I'm pretty sure it's the frosting that redeems this cake...it would make any cake taste good.
1 cup Kraft Miracle Whip
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoon cocoa
Blend miracle whip and sugar. Stir together dry ingredients and add alternately with water. Pour into 2-nine inch round layer pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
French Silk Frosting
1/2 cup butter (no substitutes)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
6 Tablespoons Fry's cocoa
1 teaspoon vanilla 2 eggs
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add cocoa and vanilla; beat. Add eggs one at a time, beating for about 5 minutes after each addition. Chill before spreading.
Then let the grandkids lick the bowl and beaters!
Spencer and Emme are coming to help Grammy bake today (no chocolate this time though). We are making cinnamon twists and...who knows what else?
