Chocolate Cake Ice Cream ConesBy Maya Moscovich on November 13th, 2012 Posted in Cakes and Cookies
Well, summer is most definitely over by now. It’s colder in the evenings and even during the day. I had some ice cream cones left from the summer but of course no ice cream. While I agree that ice cream is a great thing regardless of the season I wasn’t planning on buying a bucket of ice cream just to be able to use the cones, so I made a different kind of “Ice Cream”. I made a cake batter and poured it into the ice cream cones. I then baked it and added chocolate on top and voila! I got the ice cream look with the taste of chocolate and a lot less mess. The kids loved it and I was even happier to see their clean placements on the table after they were done.
This recipe can be used for just a regular chocolate cake in a small bake pan or for more ice cream cones. I’m not sure about the size because I made 8 cones and used the rest of the batter for a mini cake in a 7 inch pan.
- ½ Cup Sweetened/ Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (You can also mix the two)
- 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
- ¼ tsp Baking Soda
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 Cup White Sugar
- 1 Egg
- ½ Cup Vegetable Oil
- 1 Cup Hot Water
- 8 Ice Cream Cones (small ones with flat bottom)
- ½ Cup Heavy/ Whipping Cream
- ¾ Cup Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
- Preheat oven to 350F (175C)
- Mix all the cake ingredients together
- Pour about ¼ cup (until cone is ¾ full) of cake batter in each cone. Pour the rest of the batter into additional cones or into a 7 inch (18cm) greased baking pan.
- Place the cones standing (preferable in a deep baking pan to avoid falling) and gently place in preheated oven. Place the 7 inch cake in the oven as well (or you can bake it later when cones are ready).
- Bake for about 35-40 minutes.
- Wait until the cakes (cones) are cool and prepare the coating.
- Simmer heavy cream in saucepan
- Add the chocolate chips in while simmering and stir really well until fully molten.
- Remove from heat and pour about 1-2 teaspoons on each cooled ice cream cone. Decorate with coconut or sprinkles.
