Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

Cake:
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3 eggs
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Frosting:
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup milk


Directions

Cake:


Heat oven to 350° F.


Lightly coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with vegetable cooking spray; set aside.


In a medium bowl, combine the cocoa, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, and 1/4 cup water.


In a large bowl, with an electric mixer at medium-high, beat the butter with the remaining sugar until light and fluffy.


Reduce speed to low, add the remaining ingredients, and beat until smooth.


Spoon 2 cups of the vanilla batter into the bowl with the cocoa mixture; blend until smooth.


Pour the vanilla batter into baking pan.


Spoon in the chocolate batter to create six puddles on top of the vanilla batter.


Using a knife, drag through the two batters to marbleize.


Bake 22 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.


Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack.


Frosting:


Melt the chocolate in a Pyrex measuring cup in a pan of simmering water; stir.


In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer at medium speed, beat the butter, sugar, and melted chocolate, adding just enough milk to make a spreadable frosting.


Frost the cooled cake
