Milo Sheet Cake
Takes 45 minutes plus cooling
Makes 24 servings
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups Milo powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup fresh milk
More butter, for greasing
For the Frosting:
1/2 cup cream cheese
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
2 tablespoons fresh milk
2 tablespoons Milo powder
Preheat oven to 350?F. Lightly butter a 13-inches by 9-inches nonstick baking pan. Set aside.
Cream butter and sugar until light in the bowl of a stand mixer with the beater attachment. Add then beat in eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, Milo powder, and salt in another bowl. Add half the mixture to the egg mixture. Fold on Low speed until just mixed. Pour in milk, and stir on Low to mix. Dump remaining flour mixture into batter, and mix until just combined.
Pour batter into the prepared pan. Place in the oven, and bake for 30 minutes, or until the middle of the cake springs back when lightly pressed. Remove from oven, and let cool completely on a cooling rack.
Meanwhile, make frosting: In a medium bowl using a whisk, beat butter and cream cheese until mixed and light. Add half the powdered sugar, and whisk gently to incorporate into the butter mixture. Add the remaining powdered sugar and mix. Pour in milk, and stir to mix. Set aside.
To serve, spoon frosting over cooled sheet cake, and using your spatula, spread to the edges. Sprinkle top with Milo powder. Chill until ready to serve then slice.
