In a medium bowl, whisk together
All-Purpose Flour (1 cup)
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (1/2 cup)
Salt (1/2 tsp)
In a separate bowl (I used my stand mixer) beat
Unsalted Butter (1/2 cup)
on medium-high speed until smooth, about 1 minute. Add
Granulated Sugar (2/3 cup)
and continue beating until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
Whole Milk (2 Tbsp)
Pure Vanilla Extract (1 tsp)
; beat on high speed until combined, about 1 minute. Scrape down sides of bowl as necessary until well blended.
Slowly add in half of flour mixture, beating on low speed just until combined; add remaining flour mixture and continue mixing just until blended. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
