I thought I'd share another one of my favorite recipes. This recipe comes from a cookbook that the FHA from our local school came up with about 30 years ago. If you love chocolate, you'll love this cake!
Heat the following and stir until smooth:
2 sticks butter
4 tbsp. cocoa
1 C. water
Bring the above ingedients to a boil and let cool slightly.
2 C flour
2 C sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
Pour cocoa mixture into flour mixture and mix well.
Beat 2 eggs and add to the eggs 1 carton (8 oz.) sour cream. Add this to cocoa mixture.
Bake in sheet cake pan (15"X1") at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes
1 stick butter
1/4 C cocoa
6 Tbsp. milk
Bring to a boil and let cool slightly. Add 1 box powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla and 1 cup nuts (Optional: I don't add the nuts.) Spread on cake while still warm.
I hope you enjoy this moist chocolatey taste of heaven! It works for me!
