Oh, and could you start working on a reverse cake please? (Choc. cake, vanilla icing) L O L !!!
Thanks for the recipe, Betty.
The frosting on this cake is a really old frosting recipe handed down in my family for generations. I updated it just a bit and adapted it to the microwave, itís my sonís favorite he calls yellow cake with this frosting Grandma cake.
Cooked Chocolate Frosting
Mix together in a large microwave save bowl:
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons cornstarch; packed
7 tablespoons cocoa
1 tablespoon butter
3/4 teaspoon salt
Stir in with a wire wisk :
1-1/2 cups boiling water
Cook in microwave on high at 1 minute intervals stirring well after each with the wire whisk. As mixture begins to thicken cook at 30 second interval until the mixture is very thick.
Then stir in 6 tablespoons of butter and 1 tablespoon of vanilla; stirring until the butter is melted; cool to frosting consistency and frost cake.
If you prefer to cook it on the stove just stir the boiling water into the dry ingredients and cook over medium heat stirring constantly until thick and bubbly; remove from heat and add the butter and vanilla.
