Prize Cake Recipe

Prize Cake Recipe

Cake:
1/2 cup salted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 squares chocolate, melted
2 cups of cake flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup sour cream or buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup hot water

Frosting:
5 heaping TB white sugar
3 heaping TB whipping cream
2 heaping TB butter
1/3 package of chocolate chips
1/2 cup nuts (optional)

*This recipe doesn't have any details on oven temp, pans or cook time, so I will just estimate until I have a chance to make it.

For the cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Well grease a 9x13 pan.  Cream butter and both sugars until fluffy.  Add the eggs, one at a time, blending well.  Add melted chocolated and mix. Add the vanilla to the butter milk or sour cream.  Add the flour, alternating with the milk/sour cream.  Stir in the hot water and baking soda.

Bake for 25 minutes (guess at this point) or until done.  Let cool on a wire rack.

For the frosting: Bring all the ingredients to a rolling boil in a medium saucepan.  Remove from the heat and add the chocolate chips and nuts.  Blend.  Glaze cake.
