Sweet Tooth: Recipe: Mint Chocolate Chip Cake
A MUST: Mint Chocolate Chip Cake - rich chocolate cake with icing that is just like mint choc chip ice cream. I wouldn't describe this cake as being rich but it is very moist and very good. I added an extra cup of powdered sugar to the icing recipe because the butter flavor was a little over powering and I used 3 tsp of pure mint extract... It does taste like mint chocolate chip ice cream!

Mint Chocolate Chip Cake (makes one 9-inch cake, cake adapted from David Lebovitz's Devil's Food Cake recipe) 9 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder 1 1/2 cups cake flour (not self-raising, I just used plain flour and replaced 3 tbsp with cornflour/cornstarch) 1 1/2 tsp salt 1 tsp bicarb soda 1/4 tsp baking powder 115g (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature 1 1/2 cups caster sugar 2 large eggs, at room temperature 1/2 cup strong coffee (or water, I used a weak coffee as I didn't want it overpower the mint) 1/2 cup whole or low-fat milk For the icing: 280g (2.5 sticks) unsalted (or slightly salted) butter 500g icing sugar (about 4 cups), sifted 2-3 tsp peppermint essence, adjust to taste 150g dark chocolate, very finely chopped or pulsed through a food processor green food colouring Optional: waffle ice cream cones to decorate
