Favorite Chocolate Snack Cake

Happy Snack Cake

I have a new favorite chocolate cake. Like it is really good and the frosting … Oh my. I took one bite and immediately knew I was in trouble. In a good way, that is. This cake recipe found an instant place on my forever baking list. And I hope you will love it as much as I do.

White Lily Flour

The recipe is from The White Lily Cookbook. I bought it as a Christmas present for my mom and borrowed it from her recently to check it out. I chose their Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Silk Frosting to start. And it was a great start.

I decided on making it as a snack cake instead of a 2- or 3-layer cake which they also recommend.

But I kept ALL of the frosting. Oh my goodness. It does not fall short on frosting.

Chocolate Frosting

This is how things started.

And then I spread it out into a thick layer of silky sweet chocolate buttercream.

And added a few pastel jimmies on top to pretty it up a bit.

When I cut into it, I thought… okay I think it’s going to be good.

But I was not prepared. Let’s just say I had a snack attack.

The White Lily Cookbook

About the Cookbook: As I was working on this post I found out the cookbook is sold out. (Insert sad face.) I’m so bummed because it’s a beautiful book with a great lineup of recipes for breakfast, supper and desserts, of course. On the bright side, I found on their website where they offer FREE DIGITAL COOKBOOKS from the 1940s to the 1990s. And hopefully they will add this gem to their list in the future, too.

A Little bit about White Lily All-Purpose Flour: Made from soft winter wheat, which has lower protein and gluten content, this flour is a great choice for baked goods like cakes and biscuits to yield a lighter, fluffy texture. White Lily Flours are easier to find in the south. Southern bakers have sworn by it for decades. If you have trouble finding in your area, check out this White Lily store locator or you can also try purchasing the all-purpose flour on Amazon.
