Fluffy Frosted Chocolate Cake

Fluffy Frosted Chocolate Cake is a rich chocolate sheet cake topped with a light, whipped, white cooked icing. It's a perfect weekend or potluck treat!

Ingredients
  

Chocolate Cake

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • cup baking cocoa
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup room-temperature brewed coffee

Fluffy White Frosting

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup sugar
  • cup water
  • ¼ tsp cream of tartar

Instructions
 

Chocolate Cake

  • Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and set aside. Then whisk together the wet ingredients. Carefully pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix well for about 2 minutes.
  • Pour the batter into a greased 9 x 13 baking pan. Bake at 350° for about 40 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.

Fluffy White Frosting

  • Beat the 2 egg whites until soft peaks form (the "soft peaks" stage is when the peak of the meringue falls over when the beaters are pulled up out of it – like soft-serve ice cream).
  • On medium heat, cook the sugar, water, and cream of tartar mixture until bubbly.
  • Then slowly, carefully, using a thin stream, pour the hot mixture into the egg whites while mixing on high.
  • Mix on high until the egg whites form stiff peaks (the "stiff peaks" stage is when the tops of the peaks don't fold over when the beater is pulled out of the mixture). Reaching the stiff peaks stage takes about 10 minutes. Icing should be glossy and smooth when finished.

  • Spread Fluffy White Frosting all over your chocolate cake. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.

Notes

If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, make buttermilk by adding a teaspoon of white vinegar to 1 cup of milk and let it sit for about a minute before adding to the recipe.
