  • 600 grams raw cane sugar
  • 6 eggs

  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 375 grams white flour

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Slice Of Cake

How to make it:

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C. Meanwhile, grease three 20 cm baking tins and dust the tins with flour so that your cake doesn’t stick to the bottom.
  2. In a large bowl, beat 250 grams of butter with 600 grams of sugar until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time and stir the mix until it combines well.
  3. Mix the red food colouring with the cocoa and add it to the mixture from step two. Also add the flour and buttermilk followed by the vanilla and salt.
  4. Mix the baking soda with the vinegar and gently stir into the batter. Don’t mix too much and not too long!
  5. Divide the batter between the 3 baking tins and bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Then let it cool.
  6. For the white chocolate and cream cheese icing, melt the white chocolate and let it get lukewarm. Then, in a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Then gradually beat the melted chocolate and soft butter through the airy cream cheese until the whole has the structure of whipped cream.
  7. Then fill the cake and glaze it.
