It's Not Even My Birthday

No, it's not my birthday, but I made a tiny cake last night. I was celebrating...cake. Yeah, that's it.

I made this in two ramekins, then piled them on top of each other with some icing. If this doesn't make you feel like dancing, I don't know what would.

Here's the recipe if you need a tiny cake in your future.

Mini Golden Butter Cake

1 egg
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 heaping teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
3 tablespoons cocoa
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Sprinkles (optional)

To make cake:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease 2 ramekins.
Whisk together egg, sugar, melted butter and vanilla. Add in the flour, baking powder and salt and combine. Stir in the milk. Divide the batter evenly among the two ramekins.
Bake for 17-19 minutes.

To make icing:
Whisk together butter and cocoa; add in powdered sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth. Top with sprinkles if desired.

This cake is super buttery and delish. You might need to share it with someone, because it is too rich for one person (but if you are up for the challenge, go for it!).
