Chocolate Cake


  • 3 oz. Baker’s brand baking chocolate*
  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 1 c. boiling water
  • 2 c. brown sugar
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c. sour cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


In a bowl, stir together the chocolate squares, butter and water till melted.

In a mixing bowl mix brown sugar, flour, soda.  when blended add chocolate mixture, blend well.  Add eggs, sour cream and vanilla.  Mix for two minutes.

Pour into a greased and floured 9×13 baking pan/dish, bake for 35 minutes on 350 degrees.

*any flavor of baking chocolate will work. I have used Baker’s German chocolate squares and a coconut frosting and transformed this basic recipe into a German chocolate cake.  The coconut frosting recipe can be found on the inside of the German chocolate squares box, it’s really good.  Maybe try some Ghirardelli white chocolate baking squares and a caramel frosting (try Duncan Hines frosting flavors), Mmmm, can’t wait to try this one myself.
