Ingredients

CHOCOLATE CAKE

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 piece egg, room temp
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, room temp
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup boiling water

VANILLA CAKE

  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 pieces egg, room temp
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk, room temp

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease two loaf pans, line the bottoms with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. Crack in the egg, spoon in the sour cream, and pour in the oil and the vanilla. Mix with a wooden spoon until just combined.
  4. Pour in the boiling water, and slowly mix until smooth and liquidy.
  5. Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  6. Remove the cake from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool for about 10 minutes. Remove the cake from the pan and cool completely.
  7. Cut cake into 1-inch thick slices. Use a bunny cookie cutter to cut cake slices into bunny shapes. Freeze them when preparing for the vanilla cake.
  8. To prepare the vanilla cake, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  9. In another bowl, mix eggs and sugar until well combined. Gradually add oil and vanilla, mix until just blended.
  10. Slowly add half the flour mixture; mix until just blended. Add the buttermilk, mix until just blended. Add remaining flour mixture, mix until batter is combined and smooth.
  11. Remove the bunny cake cut outs from freezer. Stack them together to make a long bunny log. Line it in the bottom of the other cake pan. Pour the vanilla cake batter in the pan to cover the bunny cake cut outs.
  12. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  13. Remove the cake from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool for about 10 minutes. Remove the cake from the pan and cool completely.

Also curious what the 1/2p cups buttermilk means--is the p just a typo in the bunny inside cake recipe?

Just wondering why does the chocolate one use sour cream and the vanilla one use buttermilk?

I just put two of my go-to recipes for vanilla cake and chocolate cake. If you have your own recipe, I believe it will work too.
