The Whimsical Bake House Recipes

For my birthday this year I made a chocolate cake with cookies and cream filling. It was so good. Here is the recipe if you would like to try it yourself.

Chocolate Butter Cake

Makes enough batter for two 8 inch pans and two 6 inch pans. Or two 10 inch pans.

Grease pans. Preheat oven to 350*F

In a bowl, combine and whisk until there are no lumps:

1 cup hot coffee

1 cup cocoa powder

Add and whisk until smooth:

1 cup cold water

In a large bowl, sift together:

3 cups cake flour

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat at high speed until light and fluffy:

8 oz (2 sticks) unsalted butter

2 1/2 cups of sugar

On medium speed, add slowly and cream well:

4 large eggs

1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Add the dry ingredients alternately to the butter and egg mixture until smooth.

Pour batter evenly in pans and bake for approx. 20-25 or until toothpick comes out clean.

Cookies and Cream Filling

In the bowl of an electric mixer at high speed, whip until stiff:

2 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Gently fold in:

15 Oreos (crushed into medium sized pieces)
