Chocolate Chip Layer Cake


This is a new cake recipe! A white cake with white frosting and a surprise of chocolate chips in the cake! This cake is simple but looks nice this time of year for a birthday during December. The frosting is a Boiled Buttercream Frosting that is so buttery and delicious!

Chocolate Chip Layer Cake

Cream together:

  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 and 1/2 cups sugar

Then add in and mix well:

  • 1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil

Then mix in:

  • 3/4 cup yogurt (equal to 3 eggs)
  • 3 tsp vanilla

In a separate bowl, sift together dry ingredients:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt

Alternate mixing in dry ingredients and the milk mixture into the batter:

  • 1 and 1/4 cups milk with 1 tbsp vinegar

Then fold in:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups chocolate chips (dusted with flour)

Bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 35 minutes in 2 parchment lined 9 inch pans. Let cool before frosting. These cakes bake nice and level for layering.


Boiled Buttercream Frosting

In a saucepan, whisk milk into the flour. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly until boiling and thickened:

  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup flour

Set aside and cool until room temperature.

In a separate bowl, beat with a mixer:

  • 2 cups softened butter
  • 2 cups white sugar

Then add in:

  • pinch salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Slowly add in the cooled flour and milk mixture to the butter and sugar mixture, and beat until fluffy.

Add in:

  • 1 cup icing sugar

Mix until fluffy.

Note: This frosting can sometimes break and may not come together until the icing sugar is added. It can be a bit temperamental but when you nail it, it is sooo good.

*If the frosting separates and curdles, it is too cold and needs heat. Take a hairdryer to the outside of the bowl while mixing and it will slowly come back to the correct consistency.
