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
- 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.
- 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.
