Homemade Chocolate Cake with WOWButter Icing | Recipe


This chocolate cake recipe has been in my family for as long as I can remember. Growing up, we always made it with peanut butter icing, but since having my daughter and learning about her peanut allergy, we now use WOWButter which peanut-free soy butter. This moist chocolate cake with WOWButter, tastes almost exactly like peanut butter but is completely peanut free and safe for those with peanut allergies.

INGREDIENTS:
For the Cake:
X- 2 cups sugar
X- 2 eggs
0- 2 cups flour
0- 1/4 tsp salt
0- 3/4 cup cocoa
0- 1 tsp baking powder
0- 2 tsp baking soda
+- 1 cup milk
+- 1 cup hot coffee (Can do 1 tsp instant coffee in 1 cup hot water)
1/2 cup oil

For the Icing:
1/3 cup butter
4 cups 10X confectioners sugar
1 egg yolk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp milk
2 heaping Tbsp of WOWButter


DIRECTIONS:
For the Cake:
Use hand whisk and large mixing bowl. Mix X's together first. Then add 0's ingredients and mix. Next add +'s ingredients and mix. Stir in oil last. Grease 9 x 13 glass baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Fully cool, then add icing.

For the Icing:
Cream butter, gradually add half of the confectioners sugar, blending well. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla. Blend in remaining confectioners sugar. Add in the milk and WOWButter (or peanut butter if you are not making it peanut free). You can add in more WOWButter little by little until you get the exact taste you're looking for. Be sure to add enough milk (tablespoon at a time) until you get the creamy spread-like consistency you like.

Enjoy!

  2. I pinned this also!! We are not allergic to peanuts, but I would make it anyway for kids' birthday parties, because you just never know if a child attending is. I don't think I have ever heard of WOWbutter. This looks and sounds DELICIOUS!!!
