Sour Milk Chocolate Cake Recipe

Sunday, September 6, 2015

If you ever have leftover expired milk don't throw it away! This cake is a delicious moist cake that everyone loves! You don't need to do anything else to it. Serve it with whipped cream or just cool and sprinkle powdered sugar over it. Also this time I added someone caramel topping and drizzle some melted chocolate over the top. 

Sour Milk Chocolate Cake Recipe

2 cups sour milk
1/2 cup butter flavored shortening
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons baking soda
3 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups sugar

Beat sugar and shortening for around 2 minutes. Add the eggs beating till light in color. Add all the rest of the ingredients beating for around 4 more minutes. 

Grease a 13 x 9 pan or (as I did 2 - 9x9 rounds.  I freeze one since we are only two people)  Bake at 350 degree preheated oven for around 35 to 40 minutes or when toothpick comes out clean from the center. Don't over bake to prevent a dried out cake.

 Option Toppings Frosting or Drizzle:  My recommendation is to drizzle caramel first then hot fudge sauce or ganache (ice cream toppings) over the top of the cake. Other alternatives frost with your favorite frosting and split the cakes first and fill with pudding. If using 13x9 then add the pudding on top then whipped cream.
