Brandy Cake With Chocolate Frosting

I love this rich and decadent cake! It is easy to make and a nice treat for company and birthdays.


3 Cups Unbleached Flour

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

½ Teaspoon Salt

1 Cup Softened Butter

5 Large Eggs

2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

¼ Cup Brandy

1 Cup Buttermilk or Sour Milk

2 Cups Sugar

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Grease two 8×2 inch round cake pans or a bundt pan. Set aside. In a medium bowl sift together the flour, salt and baking soda. In a large bowl place the butter. With a mixer beat the butter for 3 minutes on medium high. The butter should be light and fluffy. Add the sugar and beat for 1 minute. Add the eggs one at a time beating for 30 seconds after each addition. Stir the vanilla and brandy into the buttermilk. Reduce the mixer speed and add the dry ingredients alternately with the buttermilk. Mix just until incorporated. Pour the batter into the prepared pan or pans. Place the pan/pans in the oven on the center rack. Bake for 45 minutes until the cake is lightly brown on the top. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Remove the cake from the pan/pans and let cool completely. Frost the middle layer (if using two pans), top and sides of the cake. Serves 10
