Recipe

Uncle Louise's Chocolate Cake


Ingredients

6 Squares unsweetened baking chocolate
1 3/4 C sugar
4 1/4 Tsp baking soda
1 C milk
1/4 C butter
2 Eggs
2 1/2 C flour, sifted
1/8 Tsp salt
1 Tsp vanilla

Directions

Melt six squares chocolate with 1/2 C sugar, 1/4 tsp baking soda, and 1/3 cup milk. Set aside to cool while making main portion of cake.

Cream 1/4 cup butter with 1 1/4 cups sugar.

Add 2 eggs, unbeaten, and beat well for 3 minutes.

In a separate bowl, combine 2 1/2 cups sifted flour, 4 tsp baking powder and 1/8 tsp salt. Add to the creamed mixture alternately with 2/3 cup milk.

Add chocolate mixture and 1 tsp vanilla.

Pour into pan(s) [greased or papered] and bake in moderate oven at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes. NOTE: "Uncle Louise" always made it in a 9" X 12" pan, so adjust baking time accordingly for different pans.

When a toothpick stuck in center of cake comes out clean, remove from oven. Cool and frost.

This is the cake recipe that "Uncle Louise", who was actually Louise Koester Faust, used. It is from Modernistic Recipe-Menu Book of the DeBoth Homemakers' Cooking School, circa 1929.
