Another two forks up by our Friday Famiily Fellowship group, this time for my rich chocolate cake with chocolate sour ceam frosting. It was easy to make. Start with a Pillsbury Devil's Food Moist Supreme (double pudding) cake mix, add 1 1/4 cups water, 1/2 cup canola oil and 3 eggs plus one yolk. After mixing, fold in 3 oz of good quality semi-sweet chocolate chips into the batter. Bake in a greased 9" X 13" pan for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Let cool thoroughly before frosting.
I made a frosting recipe from a 1980 Better Homes & Gardens cookbook. (This crowd loves a rich frosting.) Melt 6 oz of good quality semi-sweet chocolate chips with 1/4 cup butter over low heat. Cool slightly when mixed, and stir in 1/2 cup sour cream, 1 tspn real vanilla and 1/4 tspn salt. Gradually add 2 cups of powdered sugar (adjust to achieve frosting consistency). Mix for 2 minutes until the frosting is smooth and consistent. Spread thickly on the cooled cake, and wait for the compliments.
This recipe fed 9 adults and 5 high and middle schoolers, with absolutely nothing left for our dog. It's a joy to see the fellowship that happens over a delicious Friday night dessert!
