Lunch Lady Cake

If you have read any of my recipes you probably know I don’t like mixes. I prefer making everything from scratch! Maybe this is because if I have a mix I generally use it as soon as I buy it so there aren’t any in the house. But I also appreciate that it saves me money!

For a while I have been thinking about chocolate cake, funny enough I’m not usually a giant chocolate cake fan. But for some reason I’m craving one! I was actually thinking about the chocolate cake lunch ladies make, and well- here we go!

Ingredients

  • 1 c butter
  • 1/2 c cocoa
  • 2 c flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 c sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 c chopped nuts (optional)

Icing

  • 1/4 c butter
  • 1/4 c milk
  • 1/4 c cocoa
  • 3 c powdered sugar
  • dash of salt

Cream sugar and butter. Add eggs one at a time and mix each well.

Sift together cocoa and flour. Add to egg mixture. Add vanilla and nuts.

Pour in prepared 9×13 pan, bake 20-25 mins on 350.

To make the icing- add all ingredients in a sauce pain, melt butter, and stir. Pour on cake while both are warm, icing will form as it cools down.
