A Very Very Chocolate Birthday Cake

I usually make several desserts for my husband the week of his birthday. This year he requested an all-chocolate cake. I dusted off a recipe that has been sitting in my box for a few years now. This is a deliciously moist and very chocolate cake!



3 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup real butter, softened
4 eggs
2 Tsp vanilla extract
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup baking cocoa
1 Tbsp baking soda
1/2 Tsp salt
1 1/3 cups plain yogurt
1 1/3 cups boiling water


In a mixing bowl, cream brown sugar and butter. Add eggs. Beat on high speed until light and fluffy. Blend in vanilla. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; add alternately with yogurt to creamed mixture. Mix on low until combined. Stir in water until blended.

Pour into three greased and floured round baking pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Cool in pans for 10 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Frost cooled cake.



2 cups real butter, softened
9 cups powdered sugar
2 cups baking cocoa
1 Tsp vanilla extract
1 cup milk
1 Tbsp chocolate sundae syrup
1 Tbsp chocolate liquor


In a large mixing bowl, cream butter. Gradually beat in powered sugar, cocoa and vanilla. Add milk. Mix in syrup and liquor.
