Along with the Devil's Food Cake layers, I made a buttermilk cake for the Darth Gaber cake. This made one 9"x13" rectangle and an 11" round.
- 2-3/4 C white whole wheat flour
- 1/2 t baking soda
- 2 stick butter, softened
- 2 C organic granulated sugar
- 1 t organic hazelnut extract
- 1 t organic chocolate extract
- 4 large eggs
- 1 C buttermilk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare your baking pans by lining them with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar. When light and fluffy, mix in the buttermilk, extracts, and eggs. Fold in the flour and baking soda until well-combined. Spoon the batter into the prepared pans.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until firm to the touch. Cool completely on wire racks.
