This is a classic recipe for a vanilla frosting that is made with (of all things) a roux of cooked milk and flour

  • For the cake:
  • 1-3/4 cup all-purpose flour (I use King Arthur Flour unbleached flour)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cups unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup black coffee, cooled (I used a dark roast coffee. You can't taste the coffee, but the chocolate is deeper in flavor and richness with this ingredient
  • 1 cup buttermilk (or 1 Tbsp lemon juice with milk to equal 1 cup; or 1 Tbsp vinegar with milk to equal 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • For the cooked vanilla frosting:
  • 5 Tbsp unbleached all-purpose flour (I use King Arthur brand)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla
  • NOTE: I doubled these ingredients to be sure I had enough to frost a cake.
