Mini Chocolate Layer Cake

Hey!!! This week has been pretty uneventful, nothing special happened. However, as some of you might know, I joined Google+!!!! It’s freaking awesome!!! I never knew there were so many foodies out there. So what does this have to do with chocolate cake? Well, I’m following this blogger called Eva Miret Cakepuntcom, and she posted this really cool recipe for chocolate cupcakes. I adapted into a cake so I could finally use my really nice mini cake tins:

The cake isn’t anything really special, just a regular chocolate bizcocho (Spanish sponge cake) with vanilla buttercream.The presentation isn’t the best but it got high rating from my family- good enough for my first layer cake… right?.


Of course, things didn’t go exactly as planned, I put way too much batter in the tins and they went over the top in the oven. But hey, they turned out ok  Without further ado, the recipe!!!!


1/3 cup unsalted butter

1 cup brown sugar

2 large eggs

1teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

1 2/3 cups flour

10 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1.5 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup milk


½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature

150g icing sugar

2tsp vanilla extract

3tbsp milk

Directions- Cakes

Preheat the oven to 160o C and grease 3 mini cake tins. In a bowl, sift together the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt and set aside. In a separate, larger bowl, cream together the butter and sugar and beat in the eggs one by one on a low speed until well combined. Add the vanilla if using. Mix in the flour in 2-3 batches alternating with the milk and continue mixing until the mixture is homogenous. Pour into prepared pans and bake for 20-25min until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow cakes to cool completely

Directions- Frosting

Cream together the butter, icing and vanilla, ensuring that there are no lumps. Put a small part of the icing into a piping bag and reserve the rest. Keep refrigerated.


When the cakes are completely cooled, use a serrated knife to trim off the rounded part at the top. Spread a layer of frosting on the top of a cake and stack the cakes. Cover the rest of the cake with icing and decorate with piping. Serve and enjoy




Anyways, I highly suggest you guys check out Eva’s blog: . It’s in Spanish but hey, that’s what the translate function is for. Enjoy and add me on Google+!!!!!
