Ingredients

Scale

For the cake

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ounce red food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup Kahlua

For the frosting

  • 125 grams (4.5 ounces) butter, room temperature
  • 125 grams (4.5 ounces) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 500 grams (41/2 cups) powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

Instructions

For the cake

  1. Preheat oven to 325 and spray a 13×9 inch pan with a non-stick spray with flour (or butter and flour it if you’re not as lazy as me).
  2. In a small bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, use your mixer on low to combine the sugar and oil, then mix in the eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, and food coloring. Finally mix in vinegar and Kahlua.
  4. With your mixer on the lowest setting, slowly add in dry ingredients until just combined. Give everything one last mix with a rubber spatula, making sure you’ve scraped down your bowl.
  5. Pour the batter into your waiting pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. You don’t want to overbake your cake, but a toothpick should come out clean.
  6. Allow the cake to cool completely before frosting.

For the frosting

  1. In a large mixing bowl, use your electric mixer to beat together the butter and cream cheese until smooth and light. Slowly add in the powdered sugar and the vinegar. Beat until well combined.
  2. Dump all your frosting onto your cake and spread it on. I used my offset spatula to make little swirls throughout the cake. Then I cut a heart out of a sheet of wax paper. I layed it lightly over the cake like a stencil and added the sprinkles. A little romance never hurt anyone.
  3. Share this cake with people you want to make love you. It will definitely work.
