This chocolate ice cream layer cake is
as easy to make as it is impressive and delicious.
Chocolate Ice Cream
- 2 large eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar - divided use
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup buttermilk or sour milk*
Ice Cream Layers (recipe follows)
3/4 cup sweetened whipped cream or non-dairy whipped topping
1/2 cup fresh fruit, sliced
Chocolate Cream Rosettes (recipe follows, optional)
- Heat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease
and flour three 9-inch round baking pans. (If only 2 pans are
available, reserve one-third of batter in refrigerator while
first 2 layers are baking.)
- In small bowl, beat egg whites until foamy;
gradually add 1/2 cup sugar, beating until stiff peaks form.
- In large bowl, stir together flour, remaining
1 cup sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Add oil, buttermilk
and egg yolks; beat until smooth. Gently fold egg white mixture
- Pour about 1 2/3 cups batter into each
- Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until cake springs
back when touched lightly in center. Cool 5 minutes; remove from
pans to wire racks. (Bake remaining layer, if necessary.) Cool
- Wrap each layer separately in foil; freeze
several hours or several days in advance of serving.
- Prepare Ice Cream Layers. Remove cake
and Ice Cream Layers from freezer; peel off foil. On serving
plate, alternately layer cake and ice cream layers, beginning
and ending with cake. Wrap tightly; return to freezer.
- Just before serving, frost top of cake
with whipped cream. Arrange fruit in decorative design on top;
pipe on Chocolate Cream Rosettes, if desired.
Makes 10 to 12 servings.
* To sour milk: Use 1 tablespoon white
vinegar plus milk to equal 1 cup.
