Directions for 11-Carton Cake

  1. For the cake: Position an oven rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F. Spray a 10-inch round cake pan with a layer of nonstick cooking spray.
  2. To a large mixing bowl, add the yogurt, oil and granulated sugar (using the yogurt carton as the measure) and the eggs; beat together with a hand whisk until everything is incorporated and smooth, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Next, add the cake flour and cocoa using the carton as the measure, then the vanilla, baking soda and baking powder; beat together until incorporated, 1 to 2 minutes more. Add the milk and mini chocolate chips (using the carton) and mix until incorporated.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake until a cake tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool in the cake pan for 30 minutes, then remove the cake to a cooling rack and allow it to cool for another 30 minutes.
  5. For the vanilla buttercream frosting: Add the confectioners’ sugar (measured in the carton), butter and vanilla to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment and beat until smooth and creamy, 2 to 3 minutes. Spread over the top of the cooled cake in a thick layer and sprinkle with the mini chocolate chips (measure in the carton).

  • Cake – Cake is a form of sweet food made from flour, sugar, and other ingredients, that is usually baked. In their oldest forms, cakes were modifications of bread, but cakes now cover a wide range of preparations that can be simple or elaborate, and that share features with other desserts such as pastries, meringues, custards, and pies.The most commonly used cake ingredients include flour, sugar, eggs, butter or oil or margarine, a liquid, and a leavening agent, such as baking soda or baking powder. Common additional ingredients and flavourings include dried, candied, or fresh fruit, nuts, cocoa, and extracts such as vanilla, with numerous substitutions for the primary ingredients. Cakes can also be filled with fruit preserves, nuts or dessert sauces (like pastry cream), iced with buttercream or other icings, and decorated with marzipan, piped borders, or candied fruit.Cake is often served as a celebratory dish on ceremonial occasions, such as weddings, anniversaries, and birthdays. There are countless cake recipes; some are bread-like, some are rich and elaborate, and many are centuries old. Cake making is no longer a complicated procedure; while at one time considerable labor went into cake making (particularly the whisking of egg foams), baking equipment and directions have been simplified so that even the most amateur of cooks may bake a cake.
  • Dessert – Dessert (/dɪˈzɜːrt/) is a course that concludes a meal. The course consists of sweet foods, such as confections, and possibly a beverage such as dessert wine and liqueur. In some parts of the world, such as much of Central Africa and West Africa, and most parts of China, there is no tradition of a dessert course to conclude a meal.The term dessert can apply to many confections, such as biscuits, cakes, cookies, custards, gelatins, ice creams, pastries, pies, puddings, macaroons, sweet soups, tarts and fruit salad. Fruit is also commonly found in dessert courses because of its naturally occurring sweetness. Some cultures sweeten foods that are more commonly savory to create desserts.
