Love Goddess Cake Recipe
1 C. firmly packed Dutch cocoa
2 C. water
2 3/4 C. flour, sifted
1/2 t. baking powder
2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 C. unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 1/4 C. sugar
2 vanilla beans, split and scraped
1 t. pure vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly butter and flour one cookie sheet or baking pan (with one-inch sides). Boil the water and add slowly to the cocoa powder mix, whisk together until thoroughly combined. Set aside to cool.
Sift the flour together with the baking powder, baking soda and salt. Soften the butter, sugar, vanilla bean and vanilla extract in a bowl or electric mixer fitted with a whisk. Mix for 5 minutes until light and fluffy.
Add the sifted dry ingredients in thirds, alternating with the cocoa liquid in seconds. Stir very slowly to prevent splatters of chocolate and flour.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes or until the center is set. It should slightly resist the pressure of your finger. Let the cake rest for 15 minutes before unmolding. Once removed from the cake pans, let cool completely.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
