Sour milk Chocolate cake Recipes
Sour Chocolate Cake
This cinnamon-y chocolate cake gets a pleasing tang from the addition of vinegar; and a moist, fluffy crumb thanks to shortening.
For the Cake
1⁄2 cup milk
1 1⁄2 tsp. white vinegar
3⁄4 cup shortening, plus more for greasing
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1⁄2 cup cocoa powder
8 tbsp. unsalted butter
3 eggs, lightly beaten
For the Icing
2 cups confectioners' sugar
3 tbsp. cocoa powder
1⁄4 cup milk
5 tbsp. unsalted butter
Make the cake: Mix milk and vinegar in bowl; let sit until slightly curdled, about 10 minutes.
Heat oven to 350°. Grease a 9"x13" baking dish with shortening. Whisk flour, sugar, cinnamon, and baking soda, in a bowl; make a well in the center. Bring shortening, cocoa powder, butter, and 1⁄2 cup water to a boil in a 1-qt. saucepan. Cook, whisking constantly, until smooth, 5-7 minutes; let cool slightly. Whisk in milk mixture and eggs. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients until a smooth batter forms. Pour batter into greased pan and smooth top. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25-30 minutes; let cool.
Make the icing: Whisk confectioners' sugar and cocoa powder in a bowl. Simmer milk and butter in a 2-qt. saucepan over medium heat until butter is melted, 3-4 minutes. Whisk in sugar mixture until smooth. Pour icing over cake; let set completely, about 30 minutes.
