I love to get up early it is the only time in my house that it is quiet. I also love to watch the Food Network Channel and love Pioneer Woman! One Sunday morning I just so happened to catch the episode where Ree made this amazing Pioneer Woman 11 Container Chocolate Cake. I had to make it.
Yes that’s right I HAD TO MAKE IT. LOL! This recipe for Pioneer Woman 11 Container Chocolate Cake has to be one of the easiest from scratch cakes I have made. You use the yogurt “container” as a measuring tool and I just love that. It makes this cake so easy to pull together. I will have to tell you if you do not have a 10″ round cake pan you can make this in a 9″x13″ cake pan and it will work just fine. You might need to adjust the baking time a bit. Plus you do not want to over bake this cake. No one likes a dry cake.
A few things you will need:
I like to line my round cake pan with parchment paper. This will make removing the cake from the pan so much easier. Simply trace your cake pan on the parchment paper and cut it out. Place it on the bottom of the pan. When its time to remove the cake from the pan run a knife around the edge of the cake and it should easily be removable from the pan. Once the cake is out of the pan peel the parchment paper from the bottom of the cake.
Now let me tell you about the buttercream frosting on this cake. It is divine. I absolutely love this frosting. I would not use this frosting to frost a wedding cake with as it does not have the body to hold up to decorating, it is a light creamy buttery frosting. It is the perfect addition to this deep dark chocolate cake, it is not over sweet and it just melts in your mouth. I am pretty sure it will now be my go to frosting recipe.
Pioneer Woman 11 Container Chocolate Cake Recipe
This Pioneer Woman 11 Container Chocolate Cake was not only easy to make but it was really fun. Using that container made baking just a little bit funner than using a boring measuring cup.
