This recipe was created after I miscalculated a recipe for brownies. The brownies were horrible but the result was a perfect chocolaty sponge cake. I make it ever since and it's perfect for a layer cake, frosting or on it's own.

  • Stir butter, white sugar, and brown sugar together in a bowl; add vanilla extract and mix well. Stir eggs, 1 at a time, into butter mixture until smooth.

  • Sift flour, cocoa powder, and salt together in a separate bowl. Stir flour mixture, alternating with buttermilk, into butter mixture until batter is smooth, adding more buttermilk if needed to thin out batter. Pour batter into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes.

2.16.19 The flavor is chocolate-y fudg-y and indulgent but they really break down pretty well nutritionally. I scaled this recipe down to 12 servings and since I wanted portion control I baked in my mini bundt muffin pan for 18 minutes at 350º. Garnished with a dollop of chocolate whipped cream and Fragola Pazzo strawberries a recipe from this site. They baked up beautifully and they do have a bit of brownie flavor to them. dutchgirl some times good things happen even when you realize you ve screwed up the recipe and this is one of them.
