One Bowl Chocolate Cat Cake

It's not a party without chocolate cake cats and milk viles! How cute are these black cats!? Obsessed with these little guys. And all the yummy chocolate cake that is left over is used in another recipe (that I am currently uploading now ....) so it's kind of a double duty recipe ya'll. Check it out below.


One Bowl Chocolate Cat Cake

2 cups white sugar
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsps baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water
Wilton rainbow chip crunch sprinkles
Americolor Black food coloring (ALL other black gels will leave a bitter taste!)
Cat cookie cutter

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour one loaf pan (recipe fills a little more than a loaf pan so you can also make two cupcakes)

2. In a large bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla, mix for 2 minutes on medium speed of mixer. Add Americolor black food coloring gel (** ALL other black gels will leave a bitter taste!) until you reach your desired shade. Stir in the boiling water last. Batter will be thin! Pour evenly into the prepared pan. (This recipe makes a tad more than one loaf pan so you can make a little cupcake with the extra, just don't fill too high or the batter will spill all over your oven. (I promise - take this advice from someone who learned the hard way)

3. Bake 40 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cake tests done with a toothpick. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. 

4. Once cake is cool to the touch, cut 1" slices of cake and use your cat cookie cutter to make cat shapes. Add little yellow eyes and serve. 

TIP: Save extra chocolate cake pieces for another cake recipe here (uploading this as we speak).
