Ingredients

Shop Recipes ▾
  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
  • Creamy Fudge Frosting:
    • 4 egg yolks
    • 2 cups granulated sugar
    • 1 cup milk
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 8 ounces unsweetened chocolate

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat two 8 x 2-inch round cake pans with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Heat chocolate in microwave oven on HIGH 30 seconds; stir. Heat another 30 seconds until melted. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt onto a sheet of parchment or waxed paper.
  3. Beat butter in large bowl until creamy. Beat in brown sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add vanilla and melted chocolate. Alternately beat flour mixture and milk into butter-chocolate mixture. Pour into prepared pans.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 to 33 minutes or until layers spring back when pressed. Cool in pans on rack 10 minutes. Turn layers out onto racks; cool completely.
Frosting:
  1. Beat yolks in bowl until very thick. Slowly beat in 1 cup of the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, over 5 to 7 minutes until light in color. Beat in milk. Add to saucepan along with remaining 1 cup sugar and butter. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking occasionally (12 to 15 minutes). Boil, whisking, 1 minute. Remove from heat. Chop chocolate; stir in until smooth. Transfer to bowl. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
  1. Beat frosting on medium speed 4 minutes until light and fluffy. Immediately frost cake: 1 cup to sandwich layers, 1-1/2 cups for sides and 1/2 cup for top.
