Cook Time 0S

Number Of Ingredients 15

3 cups (342g) cake flour
2 cups (400g) sugar
2 teaspoons (8g) baking powder
1/2 teaspoon (3g) baking soda
1/2 teaspoon (3g) salt
2 sticks (226g) unsalted butter, softened
4 large eggs
1 cup (239g) buttermilk — **if you do not have buttermilk see note below
1 Tablespoon (12g) vanilla extract
3 sticks (339g) unsalted butter, softened (do not soften butter in the microwave)
8 cups powdered sugar (icing sugar in UK) (920g) more if needed. ** For cupcakes, I like to use 7c. (805g) for a softer frosting
1 cup (82g) unsweeteded cocoa (not Dutch processed, measure then sift
3/4 (180g) milk plus 2 Tablespoons or more if needed to reach the spreading consistency you like
2 teaspoons vanilla (12 grams)
1 teaspoon salt (6g) we like the finer grain of plain popcorn salt, to cut the sweetness

Steps:

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour three 8x2 inch round cake pans. Place a piece of parchment in the bottom of each pan.
  • Put the first 5 ingredients into the bowl of your mixer. Mix on low speed for at least 30 seconds to combine.
  • Add the softened butter (cut into pieces) mix on low speed just until it looks like coarse sand. The dry ingredients will be moistened/coated by the butter and will stick to together if you press some between two fingers. Don't over-mix or it will turn into a large dough-like ball.
  • Add the eggs 1 at a time, mixing until blended. 
  • Add the vanilla to the 1 cup buttermilk. With the mixer on lowest speed gradually pour into the mixer. Increase the speed to #2 or # 3 (on a KitchenAid mixer). Mix for 2 minutes. Batter will be fluffy and smooth. If you are using a hand mixer rather than a stand mixer, you will need to mix a bit longer.
  •    Divide batter evenly between your three prepared (8 inch) pans.
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes and turn out of pans. 
  • Add butter and mix on low to medium speed until smooth. Add vanilla and blend into the butter. Add powdered sugar, salt, and cocoa powder.
  • Add most of the milk. Begin mixing at low speed so you won't have a cloud of powdered sugar in your kitchen.
  • Continue to mix adding remaining milk as needed. It may take 5 to 6 minutes to reach the smoothness and consistency you like. It will take longer if using a hand mixer. As you mix the frosting will become very smooth. You can add additional milk (1 Tablespoon at a time) if the frosting is too thick or additional powdered sugar if too soft.
