My friend Denise gave me this recipe many years ago. After I tasted a cake she had baked and topped with this super yummy chocolate frosting, I just had to have it!

It is the perfect combination of creamy, buttery, chocolaty yum with a hint of coffee. I like to pipe it on to cupcakes or spread on top of a simple sheet cake (covers a 9×13 cake).

It is great on white or chocolate cake but I like in on chocolate cake the best. Take it over the top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Yum!

So go bake a cake for your Valentine or just because. Any day is a great day for chocolate cake! Especially one topped with this yummy frosting!

Really Good Chocolate Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa

Cream together for about 2 minutes then add the following:

  • 2 tablespoon hot coffee
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Blend together and frost cake.

Simple and really, really good! Enjoy!
