Chocolate Cake(Keik Sokolatas)

The ingredients were listed by tea-cup measure and using the metric system, and we used the "Food Lover's Companion" to Americanize it. -- Kathleen Ganster

  • Cake:
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup cocoa
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup milk
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup icing sugar (confection- ers' sugar)
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 4 1/2 ounces bakers chocolate
  • 2 teaspoons brandy
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 2 tablespoons fresh butter

Place the cake ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix lightly and then beat with a mixer for 4 or 5 minutes. The batter should be frothy. Pour into buttered cake tin and bake in moderate oven for about 1 hour. (We used a bundt pan and baked in a 350-degree oven.)

When the cake has cooled, turn out onto a platter. Meantime, prepare the glaze. Melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour glaze over the cake. (We decorated with black-eyed Susans.)
