BLACK MIDNIGHT CAKE AND SNOW PEAK FROSTING

The arrival of Nicole Higginbotham in our main office was made all the more sweet by a wonderfully delicious cake baked by Carolyn Francis.  Carolyn’s cake, baked from a recipe given to her by a grade 5 student (Earl) in the early 70’s, did not disappoint!  Due to high demand, she shares her never-fail recipe here:

EARL’S SUPER DELICIOUS BLACK MIDNIGHT CAKE

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 1 tsp salt

Mix these together in bowl.

Add these ingredients in order listed

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup black coffee

Batter is very thin!!

Bake in layer pans at 350 degrees for 35 minutes

SNOW PEAK FROSTING

  • 1 1/4 cup light corn syrup (or maple syrup or dark corn syrup)
  • 2 egg whites
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Heat syrup to boiling (watch it as it boils over quickly)

Beat egg whites at high speed, until soft peaks are formed when the beater is lifted

Add pinch of salt

Slowly pour the syrup into the egg whites while continuing to beat until the frosting is fully and forms peaks.

Fold in vanilla.

This will frost the tops and sides of a double layer cake. ( 8 or 9 inch)

(Special thanks to Carolyn, and Earl, for sharing this yumminess!)
