Kit Kat Cake RecipeFor the cake:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 6-inch cake pans.
  2. Sift together the dry ingredients. Set aside. Beat the butter until creamy with an electric mixer in a large bowl. Add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Beat the eggs into the mixture one at a time, and then add the vanilla. Mix in the dry ingredients, and then fold in the Kit Kat pieces.
  3. Divide the batter into the two pans. Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until light golden and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the cake. Allow the cake to cool for 15 minutes in the pan, and then remove and transfer to wire racks. Cool the cake completely before frosting.

For the chocolate frosting:

  1. In a small saucepan, melt the butter and the chocolate over a very low heat. Separately, in a medium sized bowl, mix together the sugar, milk, and vanilla. Wisk in the melted chocolate. Put the frosting in the refrigerator for about 10-15 minutes, or until cool.

For the white frosting:

  1. Beat the butter in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until creamy. Add in the powdered sugar a little at a time, beating until smooth. Finally, beat in the vanilla and milk.
  2. To finish the cake:
  3. Cut each cake into two layers. Put together the cake with chocolate frosting in between each layer. Frost the outside of the cake with a thin layer of the chocolate frosting. Refrigerate the cake until the frosting completely sets.
  4. Once the chocolate layer is set, frost the cake with the white frosting, and then garnish the sides with chopped Kit Kat.
