Chocolate Cake

With inspirations from Per

Whenever our milk turns a bit sour, my wife always suggests making something with it rather than throwing out the milk. So, I pulled out her moms recipe for Chocolate Cake. I was surprised to find how easy it is to make Chocolate Cake.

Chocolate Cake:
4 Squares unsweetened chocolate (cut fine)
4 T Butter
1 C Boiling Water
2 C Sugar
2 Eggs
1/2 C Sour Milk
1 t Vanilla
1 t Soda
2 C Flower
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350°
  2. Boil the water in a small sauce pan with the butter.
  3. Sliver the chocolate and add to the boiling water.
    I like this step because I do not have to melt the chocolate in a double-boiler.
  4. Add the sugar to the water butter chocolate mix. (chocolate syrup)
    for lack of a better term.
  5. Once well mixed, turn off the heat and let cool.
  6. In a small bowl or measuring cup, mix the eggs milk and vanilla together. (wet)
  7. In a separate mixing bowl, add the Soda and Flower together. (dry)
  8. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture.
  9. Add the chocolate syrup mixture to the mixing bowl.
    You do this last because you do not want to cook the eggs.
  10. Grease and flower a 9 inch baking pan.
  11. Add the batter to the pan.
  12. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until a butter knife comes out clean.
  13. Cool.
  14. Enjoy!

Though we may not always want Chocolate Cake for Breakfast, I find this a great thing to eat anytime.

Really? Sour milk? I don't know if I am brave enough to use that. But otherwise, it sounds so yummy.

Forgot to mention that if you do not have sour milk— many families finish off their milk before it sours— just add a little lemon juice to your milk to sour it.
