Modern History of Milk Chocolate

As the Chocolate Guru has discussed previously, the invention of milk chocolate is credited to Daniel Peters of Switzerland in 1876.  He combined cocoa bean solids and cocoa butter with the sugar and milk solids and the result was a product that today is the most popular type of chocolate of the chocolate industry.
Cadbury’s dairy milk chocolate followed closely behind Peters in the early 1900s and similar products by many other manufacturer followed. Since that time, the popularity of milk chocolate has increased astronomically and with the development of mass production molding machines that have help to reduce its manufacturing cost, it is now available to almost everyone.
In the United Sates, Hershey and chocolate are synonymous. Hershey established the Hershey Chocolate Company around 1900, after selling his caramel manufacturing business. After much experimenting, he developed his own method for making milk chocolate and factory was built in the rich Pennsylvania countryside where there were plentiful of fresh milk.

National Milk Chocolate Day

Today is dedicated to the unbridled consumption of milk chocolate. Milk chocolate is the favorite of millions of people.  It’s no wonder that milk chocolate gets a day to honor its existence because 92 percent of Americans prefer milk chocolate over dark; although, dark chocolate is gaining in popularity due to its health benefits.
Chocoholics everywhere can come together and share their love of chocolate for a day without feeling the guilt of indulging their sweet tooth.   Lest there be any doubt about celebrating this day,
today should be spent consuming and savoring generous amounts of your favorite milk chocolate treats—without guilt!  But if you are counting calories, 1.4 ounces of milk chocolate contains 210 calories—a low enough amount to have for a snack perhaps? And if you want to take that celebration into the kitchen, here is an awesome milk-chocolate cake recipe.  Try to save some to share!

Milk-Chocolate-Frosted Layer Cake

This cake from Food and Wine pastry chef Karina Gowing is perfection for anyone who loves frosting. The ultra-creamy icing, which is almost like a milk-chocolate ganache, gets spread liberally over layers of light, delicate, cocoa-flavored cake.

1 1/4 cups cake flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 sticks unsalted butter
1/2 cup whole milk
6 large eggs, separated
1 cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 pounds milk chocolate, finely chopped
Shaved milk chocolate, for garnish (optional)

Preheat the oven to 325°. Butter and flour two 9-inch-square cake pans.
In a medium bowl, whisk the cake flour, cocoa and baking powder. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter in the milk over low heat. Transfer to a large bowl and let cool slightly. Whisk in the egg yolks and 1/2 cup of the sugar. Add the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth.
In a clean bowl, beat the egg whites with the salt until soft peaks form. Gradually add the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and beat at medium-high speed until the whites are stiff and glossy. Fold the beaten whites into the batter until no streaks remain. Divide the batter between the pans and bake for 25 minutes, until the cakes are springy and a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean. Transfer the cakes to a rack and let cool completely.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, bring the cream to a simmer. Put the chocolate in a heat proof bowl and pour the hot cream on top. Let stand for 3 minutes, then whisk until smooth. Let the frosting stand at room temperature, stirring occasionally, until thick enough to spread, about 1 hour.
Turn the cakes out of the pans and put one layer on a plate. Top with 1 cup of the frosting, spreading it to the edge. Top with the second layer and spread the remaining frosting over the top and sides. Let the cake stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes before cutting into squares.
The cake can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
