Chocolate Buttermilk Layer Cake

I tried this at work today, Paula had made an amazingly delicious one and there were leftover bits which I promptly gobbled up. So so delicious. Naturally, I got home and made one.

Chocolate Buttermilk Layer Cake
(Donna Hay Kids Magazine, Winter 2011)

100g butter
1/2 c cocoa
3 c plain flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
3 c caster sugar
3 eggs
3/4 c buttermilk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence

Stir butter, water and cocoa over a low heat until butter is all melted. Pour into the pre-sifted dry ingredients along with the sugar and whisk. Add eggs, buttermilk and vanilla and whisk again. Cook in two 20cm cake tins at 160 degrees celsius for an hour.

100 g butter, softened
500g cream cheese
2 c icing sugar
1/2 c cocoa

Beat butter and cream cheese till pale and creamy. Add dry ingredients and beat for six or seven minutes. Smear all over the cake as desired and enjoy!
