Chocolate cake just out of the oven:
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
3 cups flour
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1 T. vanilla
1 cup milk (whole is best)
4 oz. melted unsweetened chocolate
Carefully melt chocolate in microwave.
Cream butter, add sugar, then eggs. Whip up good.
Mix in melted chocolate.
Sift dry ingredients, add to butter mixture alternately
with milk/vanilla. Whip up good once more.
I use two 8" pans, greased and lined with parchment.
Bake at 365 for about 40 minutes.
A kitchen could not smell any better
than mine does right now!
