2 cups King Aurthur Unbleached Cake Flour Blend

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 3/4 cups granulated sugar

1/2 cup unsalted butter, very soft

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup milk

1/2 cup brewed, cooled coffee or water

4 large eggs

1/4 cup dutch process cocoa powder

3/4 cup dark chocolate cocoa powder

1/2 cup butter(room temperature)

1/2 cup shortening

1/2 cup milk

2 teaspoons vanilla paste.

3 1/2 cups powdered sugar


  • Place a strainer over a large mixing bowl. Measure in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cocoa, and sugar.
  • Sift/shake the dry ingredients through the strainer into a mixing bowl, to eliminate any lumps. Add the butter and mix at low speed for 1 minute. With the mixer running, add the oil and continue mixing until the mixture looks like sand.
  • Combine the vanilla with the milk and coffee or water, and add all at once. Mix for 1 minute at low speed, stop and scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl, then mix for 30 seconds.

  • Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 34 minutes for 9x13; 28-30 minutes for 9" layers; or 24-26 minutes for 8" layers. The cake is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool on a rack before frosting.

    Sift the powdered sugar and cocoa powders through a mesh strainer into a bowl and combine. Cream the butter and shortening. Add the cocoa/sugar and mix slowly. While the mixer is running, pour in the milk and vanilla. Mix till combined.
