RECIPE FOR THE CAKE:
2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 ½ cup granulated sugar
1 cup unsalted butter 2 sticks, softened, do not melt
2 eggs room temperature
2 yolks room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon butter flavoring optional
1 cup buttermilk room temperature

Instructions
Preheat oven to 325 F.
Line the bottom of two, round 9-inch cake pans with a parchment paper circle. Grease and lightly flour the pans. Set aside.
In a medium-size bowl, sift together flour baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl cream together sugar and butter.
Mix in eggs and yolks, one at a time, mixing after each egg.
Mix in vanilla extract and butter flavoring.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk.
Mix until batter is fluffy, being sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl. (batter will be thick)
Let batter rest for 5 minutes.
Pour batter evenly into prepared pans and use an offset spatula to spread into an even layer.
Bake for 30-35 minutes (may need a tad bit longer) or until golden around the edges and moist crumbs cling to a toothpick inserted into the center.

Place on a cooling rack until pans are warm enough to touch and then carefully remove cake from pans and allow to cool completely.

RECIPE FOR CHOCOLATE FROSTING:
3/4 cup unsalted butter softened (do not melt)
3 cups powdered sugar sifted
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (sifted)
1/3 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon natural butter flavoring
pinch salt

Instructions
In a large bowl mix together butter, powdered sugar, and unsweetened cocoa powder. (mixture will be very grainy)
Mix in milk, vanilla extract, butter flavoring and salt, until creamy.
Notes
This frosting is thick but gets softer when stirred before spreading. If you prefer it thinner, add more milk but only a drop at a time. A little milk goes a long way.
