Ingredients

Chocolate Cake:

Creme Egg Buttercream:*

Instructions

Chocolate Cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350F, grease three 6" round baking pans and dust with cocoa powder. Line bottoms with parchment.
  • Place all dry ingredients into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Stir to combine.
  • In a medium bowl whisk all wet ingredients (pour coffee in slowly, while whisking, as not to cook the eggs if very hot).
  • Add wet ingredients to dry and mix on medium for 2-3 mins. Batter will be very thin.
  • Pour evenly into prepared pans. I used a kitchen scale to ensure the batter is evenly distributed.
  • Bake until a cake tester comes out mostly clean. A total of 30-35mins.

Creme Egg Buttercream:

  • Beat butter until pale and smooth (2mins). Add in powdered sugar 1 cup at a time and beat until smooth (2-3mins). Add vanilla and heavy cream and beat until well combined (1-2mins). Add in chopped up creme eggs and beat on med-high to break chocolate into smaller chunks.
  • Spread on cooled cake.

Notes

*Note: The buttercream is very sweet. It goes well with the not-too-sweet chocolate cake, but if you don't like super-sweet frostings, I suggest cutting back on the sugar and/or Creme Eggs.
