Basic Chocolate Cake
Bake 2 cakes in 9" Round Cake pan
There are lots of recipes out there for a basic chocolate cake. I have to admit, I used a cake mix. Remember, you only need to beat the cake batter for only 30 seconds. The Bosch Mixer is so powerful you do not need to do the full mixing time that recipes call for.
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup raw sugar
3 Tbs cornstarch
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
1 large egg
1 to 2 drops green food coloring
Whip all ingredients together. In sauce pan, heat over low heat whisking constantly till thick. After thickened, refrigerate for at least one hour. It needs to be cold.
1 1/2 cup cold heavy cream
2 Tbs powder sugar
Put 1 cake on plate and then cover with the filling. Place the other cake on top and top with whip cream topping. I garnished with green chocolate chips in keeping with my St. Patrick theme.
