Magleby's Chocolate Cake Copycat

Magleby’s Chocolate Cake

Mix together then set aside:
1 Cup butter (softened to room temperature)
1 Cup water
4 Tbsp cocoa powder, heaping
Sift together the following:
2 Cups flour
2 Cups sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
Pour chocolate mixture over dry ingredients, gently mix.
In separate bowl combine the following:
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp soda — dissolved in little water
1 tsp vanilla
Combine with chocolate ingredients… then add
1/2 Cup sour cream
Do not over mix.
Very meticulously, grease and line with parchment paper 3 9-inch round cake pans. Force yourself to do this so it’s done and over. It's a big pain but you’ll be so glad you did it in the end. Alternatively this recipe will fill a 9by 13 pan very nicely!

Divide the batter evenly among 3 9-inch rounds, then bake at 325 for about 1 hour.
Frosting (PS, Magleby’s will freeze the cakes before frosting)
1 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
3 Tbsp cocoa
4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Alternate ingredients into the mixture beat until smooth.

Protein Balls

These little protein packed balls are dynamite! And so easy that my 9 year old is the main maker of them!

Protein Balls

1 cup peanut butter or almond butter
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
2/3 cup ground flax seed
1/2 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips
4 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp black chia seeds
1/3 cup shredded coconut

In a microwave safe bowl melt the honey and peanut butter in 30 second increments stirring until smooth. When combined allow to cool for 5 mins and then stir in the oats and flax meal. Then stir in Coconut and chia seeds. Allow to cool for 5 more minutes and then stir in the chocolate chips so they don't melt.  Scoop into 1-inch balls and store in an air tight container in the freezer.
