Chocolate Cake, No. 2


  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1 3/4 cups of flour
  • 1/4 pound of Baker's chocolate
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder


Scrape the chocolate fine and add 5 tablespoons of sugar to it (this in addition to 1 1/2 cups). Beat the butter to a cream. Gradually add sugar, beating all the while. Add 3 tablespoons of boiling water to the chocolate and sugar. Stir over the fire until smooth and glossy, then stir into the beaten sugar and butter. Add to this mixture the eggs well beaten, then the milk and flour in which the baking powder has been thoroughly mixed. Bake twenty minutes in a moderate oven. This makes two loaves.
