MyCookbook Recipe Database
MyCookbook Member: Olha
Recipe Category: Dessert
Recipe Preparation Level: moderate
A blend of honey and chocolate makes this cake rich, tender-moist, flavorful, and fine-textured. It is very much like a chocolate cake.
3 ounces unsweetened chocolate
2/3 cup honey
1 3/4 cups sifted cake flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup sour milk or buttermilk
Melt the chocolate, add the honey, and heat slightly to liquefy it. Mix until well blended. Cool to lukewarm.
Sift the flour with the baking soda, baking powder, and salt twice.
Cream the butter thoroughly, add the sugar gradually, and cream until light. Stir in the vanilla.
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Blend in the chocolate-honey mixture. Add the flour alternately with the sour milk, or buttermilk, a small amount at a time.
Spoon the batter into a buttered 8 x 8 inch baking pan.
Bake in a moderate oven (350 degrees F.)for about 40 minutes, or until done when tested. Lower the temperature to 325 degrees F. for the last 20 minutes of the baking period to prevent scorching.
