Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 oz unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup raspberry yogurt
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 batch Mocha Frosting

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. Melt the chocolate and let cool for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt together into a small mixing bowl.
  4. Cream the butter with an electric mixer.
  5. With the mixer running, add the sugar and eggs. Wait until they are well incorporated, then add chocolate and vanilla.
  6. Alternately add the yogurt and flour mixture 1/3 to 1/2 at a time, then slowly add the hot water, and keep mixing until everything is well blended.
  7. Pour into 2 greased and floured cake pans and bake for 35-40 minutes. Cool on wire racks, removing the cakes from the pans when you can do so safely.
  8. While the cake is in the oven and cooling, make the frosting. Wait until the cake is well cooled before icing, because the frosting tends to melt on hot cakes.
