Ingredients

  • CAKE
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 6 ounce container of Chobani Honey Greek Yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 sticks regular butter if you have unsalted, that is fine too!
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 cup water
  • FUDGE FROSTING
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 16 oz package powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325 F. Sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in Chobani Honey Greek Yogurt, sour cream, and lightly beaten eggs. Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in 1 cup water and 1/4 cup cocoa. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Remove from heat.
  • Let it cool a minute, and then with a hand-mixer on a low speed, add in the yogurt mixture into the cocoa mixture a little at a time. Pour the luscious batter into a lightly greased 15x10x1 jelly-roll pan.
  • Bake at 325 F for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • While the cake bakes, prepare the frosting.
  • Stir together first 3 ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes or until butter is melted. Cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes or until slightly thickened; remove from heat. Beat in powdered sugar and vanilla at medium-high speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Spread the warm cake with Fudge Icing.
