Step 2: Here’s How You Can Make It:
Make the cake:
Preheat oven at 350◦ Fahrenheit. Butter 9 inch cake pan lightly and sprinkle 1 tablespoon sifted flour. Tap pans gently to coat it evenly and discard the excess flour. Line the pan with a parchment paper cutting the same to the size of the pan.
Step 3: Mixing Butter and Sugar
Mix together butter and sugar in a large bowl until evenly blended.
Step 4: Adding Eggs and Vanilla
Now add 2 eggs, one at a time and thereafter, vanilla and mix until they are incorporated.
Step 5: Mixing Flour and Baking Powder
In a separate bowl, sift flour and add baking powder and salt to it and make sure to blend the entire dry mixture well.
Step 6: Adding Dry Mixture to the Egg Mixture
Add half of the dry mixture to the egg mixture pouring in half cup of milk. Repeat the same with the remaining mixture. Keep on mixing until it is blended. Add chocolate chips in the mixture.
Step 7: Pouring the Batter
Pour the batter in the pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Once done, let it cool in the rack completely. Note: In case the cake is domed, level the top with a serrated knife.
Step 8: Make the Frosting
- Mix sugar, butter, salt and vanilla until they are well blended. In another bowl, pour boiling water and add espresso powder to it. Add this mixture to the frosting and blend well.
- On the serving platter, place one layer of the cake and spread one-third of the frosting over it evenly. Top the frosted layer with the second layer of the cake and spread the frosting again on the top as well as on the sides evenly.
- Decorate the cake with chocolate chips on the sides and on the top.
