Hello, last week I made one of my favorite cakes which is chocolate with homemade peanut butter frosting, and that got me thinking what other people like to bake.

I have a caramel apple cake, my aunt's carrot cake melts my butter too. Mom always made an amazing German's chocolate cake for my birthday, so that has a sweet spot with me

cakes in our family. My late grandfather had a bakery. My great-aunt made one as well. they caused "chocolate wars" in the family. They are similar, but different, and sinfully good.

The most moist and delicious chocolate cake recipe came from the Great Depression.

2 cups flour (NOT self-rising flour)
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup cold (COLD) water
1 tablespoon baking SODA
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon salt

Mix in your kitchen-aid on speed four with whip (or, in a mixmaster on speed 5) for two minutes. Since all flour is different, you may need to adjust the amount of Cold Water in order to get a cake batter consistency. Pour into a 9 x 13 pan sprayed with Pam. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes. Cool and cut into squares.

I have a convection oven, so the baking time is 25 to 30 minutes.

This cake really needs no frosting, but a nice cream cheese glaze drizzled over each cut piece would be a great topping.

Sorry, there's also 6 tablespoons of cocoa powder, which makes it a chocolate cake.

My Favorite Chocolate Cake

I don't make this very often, too much time and its not cheap, but its the best I ever tasted!It won first place many years ago at the Pennsylvania Farm Show.
3 cups packed light brown sugar
1 cup room temp. butter
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 2/3 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup baking cocoa
1 tablespoon soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/3 cups sour cream
1 1/3 cups boiling water.
Cream brown sugar and butter,add eggs 1 at a time beating well after each,beat on high speed until very light and fluffy,blend in vanilla,sift dry ingredients and add alternately with sour cream,mix on low until just combined,stir in water until blended..
NOTE..IF YOU USE A KITCHEN AID...DO NOT EVEN TRY to blend in the cant be done as the single beater throws water and cake batter everywhere...Do it by hand or with a 2 beater mixer like a Sunbeam...I learned this by trial and error!!!
Pour into 3 well greased and floured 9 inch pans,bake at 350 for 35 minutes, cool 10 minutes and turn out..

1/2 cup butter
3 squares "1 oz each" unsweetened chocolate
3 squares semi sweet chocolate
5 cups powdered sugar sifted
1 cup sour cream
2 tsp vanilla
Melt butter and chocolate over very low heat,cool several minutes
In large mixer bowl, combine sugar, sour cream and vanilla, blend until smooth,add chocolate mixture and beat until smooth, frost cooled layers...A lot of trouble but well worth it, I'm making one tonight for Donalds birthday.

My cookbooks are turning to dust since I now use the Net for recipes. I just did a German chocolate cake for the ex on her BD....we're buying a house together so I'm being nicey nice. The recipe called for one giant cake and I decided to make two smaller ones to have filling in the center. However, I didn't figure that the two smaller cakes would cook faster than one giant cake, even thought it was the same amount of cake batter. I caught them before they burned, but they were pretty dry.


The frosting though, was to die for.......since technically the cake was dry, I can't vouch for it 100%. I think I pulled it off of I think it cost close to $30 to make...that's the downside to a lot of recipes from scratch with many ingredients. 


When I was mentoring boys, they talked me into getting one of those handheld DS game things. I played some brain games on it but got bored....then I discovered a cooking Gives a list of ingredients, tells you how to make things like pizza dough in side fields (if you need it) and tries to give a sampling of cuisine from all over the world. Oh yeah, it actually talks to you as you cook....pretty awesome. I made Ratatouille from! Anyway it has desert recipes too.
