Sprinkles For Breakfast Birthday Recipes Chocolate Sprinkle Cake

Tomorrow is National Chocolate Cake Day – and in honor of this great holiday, I decided to prepare accordingly with this Chocolate Sprinkle Cake.

How to Make Chocolate Cake With Sprinkles

I know for most people this may not be a huge holiday, but for me, it’s kind of a big deal. Cake has always been my favorite food. There is just something about the stacked layers and creamy frosting that make it impossible for me to resist. But it wasn’t until last week that I realized how sick my obsession really is.

How To Make A Chocolate Sprinkle Cake

I spent the last week cleaning out my childhood home, and a good amount of that time was spent sitting on the floor of my mother’s closet sorting through hundreds of family photos.

As I did this, I started to notice a recurring theme happening in my stack. Throughout my life, I am frequently photographed with cake. Sometimes I would be posing cutely with the cake like this…

Ingredients
  

CHOCOLATE CAKE

  • 2 cups sugar (402g)
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (224g)
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (88g)
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk (250ml)
  • 1 cup strong black coffee (250ml)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (120ml)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

FROSTING

  • 1 lb. unsalted butter, room temperature (454g)
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 lbs. powdered sugar (907g)
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Milk
  • 1 1/2 cups sprinkles (6 oz)

Instructions
 

For the cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F, and line three 8" cake pans with parchment.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix on low until dry ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  • On low speed add eggs, buttermilk, coffee, oil and vanilla.
  • Once everything is combined beat on medium speed for 1 minute.
  • Divide batter evenly between the three pans.
  • Bake for 20-24 minutes, or until wooden toothpick comes out clean.
  • Place on a cooling rack to cool.

For the frosting:

  • In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat butter and cream cheese together until light and fluffy.
  • Slowly add powdered sugar. Mix until combined and fluffy.
  • Add vanilla and milk. Mix until combined.

Assembly

  • Once cakes are cool, remove them from the pans and place one layer onto a cake plate. Using an offset spatula, spread a generous amount of frosting to the edge of the cake.
  • Turn the second layer upside down (so the bottom is face up) and gently place it on top of the first layer. Repeat with the third layer.
  • Use the remaining frosting to frost the rest of the cake. Start with a generous amount on the top and work your way to the sides.
  • Once the outside is completely frosted, hold the cake over a large bowl (or place in on an upside down cake pan) and firmly press sprinkles into the sides and on the top of the cake. Repeat until the cake is completely covered.

  1. Made this for my partner’s birthday today, and it looks great! I would recommend doubling the amount of frosting if you’re hoping to have frosting layers that match what is in the picture.

Just found this old video and I cried laughing because…
1. I still wear 99.9% black
2. I still do handstands at home
3. I’m teaching free food photo classes this week!

So it felt appropriate to repost. And also…that video of me doing the “vault” is just too good not to share.
