Over the past week, I've been in the mood for a comfort dessert. I've been fighting a sinus infection, so all I really feel like doing is sitting around :(
My favorite cake combination is yellow cake with chocolate frosting. When I made cake from box mixes, this is always what I would choose. I picked up a cake book from the library a few weeks ago which mixed up cakes just using one bowl. It seemed like a pretty straightforward method (no creaming the butter & sugar and alternating between milk and a flour mixture here!). You dump the dry ingredients in a bowl, add the wet ingredients, and mix.
The cakes turned out surprisingly great! They were moist and had a yummy butter flavor. I also mixed up a sour cream chocolate frosting which had just the right amount of tang. These cupcakes were so YUMMY that my husband started to eat them before I had the chance to frost all of them.
