Choco x Orange Cake


Chef's Note: To be honest, this cake is just a vessel for the frosting. The chocolate cake is based off of BA's chocolate cake: https://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/easiest-chocolate-birthday-cake, but the orange whipped cream cream cheese frosting is my own creating that combines the lightness of whipped cream with the acidity of orange and full-bodied flavor of cream cheese. Both the cake and the frosting are super easy and accessible for any beginner, so get baking!


Cake Ingredients:

3/4 cup vegetable oil

1 1/3 cups AP flour

1 1/4 cups granulated sugar

1 3/4 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. baking soda

1 1/4 tsp. kosher salt

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

2 large eggs

1 cup milk

1 tsp. vanilla extract


Recipe:


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease your cake pan with oil, and line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.


Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and kosher salt together.


Sift 1/2 cup coca powder into bowl, then whisk to combine.



Whisk 2 large eggs, 3/4 cups vegetable oil, and 1 tsp. vanilla extract until creamy. Mix egg mixture intor dry ingredients.



Warm 1 cup milk in a small saucepan until it simmers, but don't boil it. Whisk milk into batter


Pour into pan and bake for 40-50 min. The cake is done when a toothpick comes out free.


Let cool before frosting.


Orange Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

1/2 orange


Recipe:
