Number of ingredients: 10
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 ½ cups white sugar
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 3 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup white sugar

How to cook:
  1. Preheat an oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8 inch round baking pan.
  2. Beat the butter and 1 1/2 cups of sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Add the room-temperature egg yolks one at a time, allowing each egg yolk to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Pour in the flour alternately with the milk, mixing until just incorporated. Stir in the almond extract. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form in a large glass or metal mixing bowl. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites should form a sharp peak that holds its shape. Fold the egg whites into the batter; mixing just enough to evenly combine. Pour the batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 90 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack. Cut any excess cake so that it is flush with the sides of the pan.
  4. Bring the water and 1 cup of sugar to a boil for 8 to 10 minutes. Reduce heat to a simmer, then add brandy and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes and remove from heat. Allow syrup to cool to room temperature. Prick holes in the cooled cake with a toothpick, then slowly saturate the cake with the brandy syrup.

Mix the flour mixture into the egg yolk mixture until well combined, then fold in the egg whites. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake for 35 minutes. Let the cake cool completely.

Jan's Grandmothers Puerto Rican Chocolate Cake

Jan's Grandmothers Puerto Rican Chocolate Cake
That secret ingredient really spices up the flavor in this chocolate cake! The buttermilk makes it really moist. And that frosting... oh my. It's delicious and I recommend doubling it. Next time I am going to... I like a lot of frosting on my cake!

Prep time: 60 minutes
Yields: 8 servings
Cuisine: Puerto Rican
Number of ingredients: 18
  • 2 cup(s) all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon(s) cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon(s) ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cup(s) sugar (add with the dry ingredients)
  • 1 stick(s) butter
  • 4 tablespoon(s) baking cocoa
  • 2/3 cup(s) water
  • 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla
  • 2 - eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup(s) buttermilk, or regular milk + 3 tsp vinegar
  • 1/2 stick(s) butter
  • 3 tablespoon(s) baking cocoa
  • 2 tablespoon(s) milk
  • 1 1/4 cup(s) powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) vanilla
How to cook:
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Prepare a 9x13 pan with parchment at the bottom or spray it with Baking Pam. OR divide the batter and pour it into prepared 8 inch round cake pans. Use the bottom of the pan to trace circles from the parchment.
  2. In a large bowl sift together flour, cornstarch, 1 1/2 to 2 C sugar, baking soda, and salt. DO NOT ADD THE COCOA!! But don't worry if you do, I have it still tastes great!! I promise. I have also made this cake and forgot the sugar!! It was good but wasn't sweet! Thankfully the frosting was sweet though...
  3. In a medium saucepan over medium heat bring the water, butter and cocoa to a slow simmer, stirring with a flat bottomed wooden spatula across the bottom and around the sides of the pan to avoid scorching the mixture. Simmer 5 minutes. Remove from the heat & add the vanilla, fold into the sifted dry ingredients. This will cool the cooked mixture. Incorporate until it is barely mixed. Mix the slightly beaten eggs and buttermilk in a bowl and add it to the batter. Don't over mix it. No buttermilk? Use regular milk + 3 tsp of vinegar. Tastes great! I promise!
  4. Pour the batter into prepared pans. Spread the batter evenly, tap the pan on the counter to allow bubbles to come up. Bake the cake for 30 minutes or until the cake springs back when touched. If using round tins, place pans side by side in the oven, then switch positions of pans at the halfway time of baking. Once baked cool on a cooling rack.
  5. FROSTING: 1/2 Stick of Butter, 3 Tbsp Baking Cocoa, 2 Tbsp Milk, 1 1/4 C Powdered Sugar, 1/2 tsp Vanilla. In a medium size saucepan stir together butter, cocoa, & milk bring to a slow boil avoid scorching. Remove from heat gradually add the powdered sugar & vanilla, stir until smooth. While the frosting is warm, pour it over the cooled cake the frosting will make its way down the sides, use a knife to smooth it to your liking or leave it alone.
  6. Let it cool, cut yourself a piece of cake and enjoy it with your favorite beverage. --This recipe can be doubled, just use bigger pans, adjust the baking time as necessary and watch closely for under or over baking. Enjoy.
