Mini Chocolate Whiskey Cakes

Get ready to indulge in a holiday delight with our Chocolate Whiskey Cake with Chocolate Whipped Frosting recipe! This dessert is sure to become a must-have at your family gatherings. The combination of dark, rich chocolate and a hint of whiskey creates a sensational treat that everyone will love.

Here's what you'll need for the cake:

- 2 cups granulated sugar

- 2 cups all-purpose flour

- 3/4 cup dark cocoa powder (sifted)

- 2 teaspoons baking soda

- 1 teaspoon kosher salt

- 1 cup whole milk

- 2 large eggs

- 1/2 cup vegetable oil

- 2 teaspoons vanilla

- 3/4 cup warm water

- 1/3 cup whiskey of your choice

Let's get started!

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13x9 inch pan with cooking spray and dust it with 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder. Tap and turn the pan until it is completely coated, then dump out the excess cocoa powder.

2. In a large bowl, mix together the wet ingredients: whole milk, eggs, vegetable oil, vanilla, and whiskey. In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: granulated sugar, all-purpose flour, sifted cocoa powder, baking soda, and kosher salt. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, scraping down the sides of the bowl, until everything is well incorporated.

3. Pour the cake batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.

After baking your delicious chocolate whiskey cake and allowing it to cool, it's time to elevate it even further with a delectable chocolate whipped frosting. This light and fluffy frosting will perfectly complement the rich flavors of the cake. Here's how you can complete the recipe:

Ingredients for Chocolate Whipped Frosting:

- 2 cups of heavy cream

- 1/2 cup of powdered sugar

- 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder

- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

- 1 tablespoon of whiskey (optional, to enhance the flavor)

Instructions for Chocolate Whipped Frosting:

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and cocoa powder.

2. Using an electric mixer or stand mixer, beat the ingredients on low speed for a minute to incorporate them. Then, gradually increase the speed to high and continue beating until soft peaks form.

3. Stir in the vanilla extract and whiskey (if using), and mix just until combined. Be cautious not to overbeat, as it can result in a grainy texture.

4. Once the chocolate whipped frosting is prepared, frost the cooled cake generously. You can use a spatula or a piping bag to achieve your desired decorative look.

5. For an extra touch, sprinkle some chocolate shavings, cocoa powder, or chopped chocolate on top of the frosting. This will add an appealing texture and an extra burst of chocolate flavor.

6. After frosting the cake, cover it and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or until ready to serve. This will allow the frosting to set and the flavors to meld together.

7. Slice and serve this luscious chocolate whiskey cake, savoring the moist layers of cake and the fluffy chocolate whipped frosting.

Remember, the chocolate whipped frosting will add an airy and velvety texture to the cake, making it even more enticing with each bite. Enjoy this delightful dessert with family and friends, and relish in the decadent flavors of chocolate and whiskey.
