Above-Average Chocolate Cake

I made a homemade chocolate cake this weekend. Here’s the recipe, my conglomeration of 2-3 different recipes. It is a moist and sturdy cake, slow baked. And it is yummy, if I do say so myself.

Makes one 9×13 cake

Heat oven to 300˚.

Grease and flour baking pan/pans.

Put kettle of water on to boil.

Mix together in mixer bowl:
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
¾ cup powdered cocoa
2 teaspoons baking soda (sift it if it has lumps)

Make a cup of soured milk:
put 2 Tablespoons white vinegar in a one-cup measure, and fill with milk

Add to bowl and then mix on low:
1 cup soured milk
¾ cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla

Add 1 cup boiling water and mix well. Batter will be thin. Pour into prepared pans and bake about 1 hour, or until toothpick comes out clean.

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees
    Rinse and trim artichokes
    Spread petals open to season
    Sprinkle salt over the top
    Stuff garlic cloves between the petals
    Drizzle with olive oil, lemon juice and broth
    Tightly double wrap and seal with foil
    Bake medium artichokes 60 minutes,

    One time my sister in law made a “homemade from scratch chocolate cake and I was hooked. I still usually use a box mix but I agree the difference is a big deal!
