Mint Chocolate Chip Layer Cake – Deliciously moist and fluffy mint chocolate cake layered with silky Swiss meringue buttercream and chocolate chips!
Mint and chocolate. One of my all-time favourite flavour combinations. If you love it as much as I do, you’re gonna love today’s recipe. How does a Mint Chocolate Chip Layer Cake sound to you?
It was my birthday last Saturday, so it only seemed right to make a cake full of my favourite flavours, and happens to be the best mint chocolate cake recipe I’ve ever had! 🙂
Mint Chocolate Chip Layer Cake
Today’s recipe is infused with mint, in both the cake and the buttercream for extra minty goodness! And how can you not pair mint with chocolate chips? I’ve incorporated chocolate chips in 2 ways.
I’ve layered them in the cake along with the buttercream, and I’ve pressed them up against the cake, and on top. Because you can’t have too many. 😉
The buttercream I have used for this mint chocolate chip layer cake is a Swiss meringue buttercream. The same recipe as what’s on my Salted Caramel Cupcakes, only doubled, and minty green.
Swiss meringue buttercream is luxuriously silky, light, and smooth, and it’s super easy to use to frost a cake. It’s definitely my favourite buttercream. It takes a little longer to make than the classic American buttercream, but it’s totally worth it!
