Chocolate Buttermilk Layer Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

This cake is perfect for any occassion especially if it's for someone who loves chocolate. The buttermilk added to the batter yields a cake that is tender and moist. A combination of dark chocolate and cocoa gives you an inviting flavour of chocolate with every bite. The highlight of this cake, however is the chocolate cream cheese frosting. I have 3 words for it: "To Die For"!

The combination of the buttermilk and the cream cheese gives the cake a lightly sour edge that cuts the sweetness of the chocolate. With the frosting sandwiching each layer, you get a bit of frosting with every bite and makes for a cake that you just want more and more of.

Ingredients: Flour, Butter, Sugar, Eggs, Dark Chocolate, Cocoa, Cream Cheese, Icing Sugar, Vanilla
The cake pictured here is about 2kg, 5" in height and 8" in diameter and will serve 24 as you only need a small slice for each person. You can order the smaller version with only 2 layers and this will yield a serving of 12.

  1. I couldn't stop myself from giving this cake a review: it was one of THE best bakeries in the city! It was moist and delicious and the frosting was yummilicious! I wanted to eat the whole thing by myself! I am always fun of chocolate, I've eaten many chocolate cakes, but this one is going to stay on my taste bud for a long while.

  2. This cake was absolutely "scrummilicious", firm but moist, rich and beautiful. And if that wasn't enough, the frosting was amazing!

  3. We had a taste of this cake and all we can say is "we want MORE!". The cake was dense and chocolaty. Perhaps the buttermilk gave it a slightly caramel taste. Caramel + Chocolate = YUMMMM!!!! And the frosting - deep, velvety chocolate, just the right texture - not too thick or too light. Perfect!
