Cream Cake with Chocolate Frosting

Recipe Courtesy Chef Bryan Woolley

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • vegetable spray

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degree’s Fahrenheit.
  2. Place the eggs in your mixer and with the whisk attachment whisk the eggs on high for about 3 minutes.
  3. Turn the machine to low and gradually add the sugar to the foamy whisked eggs.
  4. Once the sugar is added to the eggs they should resemble a firm meringue.
  5. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk the dry ingredients together to combine.
  6. Change the whisk to the paddle attachment and alternate the dry ingredients with the heavy cream to the egg mixture. Once everything is added to the cake turn the machine on high and let it blend until smooth. Add the vanilla and mix just until combined. If needed scrape down the bowl making sure everything is combined.
  7. Spray a large bread pan with vegetable spray and transfer the cream cake batter to the prepared bread pan.
  8. Place the cake in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. Remove the cake from the oven and let it completely cool before removing it from the pan.
  10. Once removed, frost the cake my creamy chocolate frosting (recipe below).

These fun recipes were adapted from an old cookbook from the 1900's I inherited when my Great Grandmother died. I hope you enjoy and have fun resurrecting a century old cake!
