Food Cake (From Nano)
*to sour milk, add 1 T. vinegar to 1 c. milk, let sit 15 min.
2 Cream the butter and gradually add the sugar, creaming until the mixture is fluffy.
3 Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
4 Add the melted chocolate and mix.
5 Add the flour and the milk alternately, in three parts. Beat the batter well after each addition.
6 Add the vanilla.
7 Put the batter into three greased and floured 8" cake pans
8 Bake in a moderate oven (325-350įF) for 30-35 minutes.
KEY: This cake does not contain lovely modern ingredients like
seaweed and chemicals. It will fall if you tromp about the
kitchen while itís in the oven.
