Michael Strahan's Mom's Butter Cake with Chocolate Frosting was a Big Hit with Kelly on Kelly and Michael

Michael Strahan's mom, Louise, shared her Butter Cake Recipe with Kelly Ripa, explaining that it was Michael’s favorite dessert and one that she learned to make from her aunt. Michael swears by it and yes that is 2 eggs shy of a dozen! It sounds to be as big a hit as Kelly and Michael!
2 Boxes of Butter Recipe Cake Mix
1 C Flour
1 C Sugar
1-¼ C Oil
2 C Sour Cream
10 Eggs
1 Stick of Butter
4 C Powdered Sugar
Evaporated Milk
1/3 C Cocoa
Preheat oven to 350°. Mix all ingredients together. Spray baking dish or cake pan with cooking spray and spread cake mixture evenly. Bake for one hour. Let cool before frosting. (may be baked in two round cake pans)
Cream softened butter. Mix powdered sugar and cocoa into evaporated milk until you can handle it. Add creamed butter and mix until texture is smooth.

I'm baking this in a 9x13 pan and just chcked it after an hour at 350 - it's still liquid in the middle...I have a feeling the pan was supposed to be bigger maybe? said...

So an extra 15 minutes did the trick and it turned out great. Didn't have evaporated milk so I used my own chocolate buttercream frosting recipe with half and half. It's a tall cake in that 9x13 pan. Taste-wise...very moist and you can taste those eggs. Nice cake.
