Chocolate Cake with Cocoa Puffs Frosting
Made with cocoa powder, melted bittersweet chocolate, sour cream, and brown sugar, this cake is rich, moist, and a treat for the hungry school kid in you.
- The cake batter can be mixed by hand, however, you will need an electric mixer to make the frosting.
- Dry milk powder is available in non-fat and regular varieties: both will work in this recipe.
- This recipe can be adapted to make 24 cupcakes. Line two 12-cup muffin tins with cupcake liners and divide batter equally among prepared tins. Bake until toothpick inserted in center of cupcakes comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool cupcakes in tins for 10 minutes, then remove from tins and cool completely on cooling racks, 30 to 45 minutes, before frosting.
