Fun Things to Share

My sister reminded me today about a cake that we used to make when I was in art school, a  killer potluck crowd-pleaser named Gene’s Sohio Chocolate Cake. Gene worked at the local gas station, and was a friend of my lively household of roommates. Very rich, very chocolate-y. Probably enough calories to keep a small village going.

Gene’s Sohio Chocolate Cake

 4 C  flour
4 C  sugar( try 3- 3 ½)
1 ½ C  cocoa
4 tsp baking soda
4 tsp baking powder
 2 sticks butter
4 eggs
2 C milk
2 C  hot coffee
4 tsp vanilla

Cream butter and sugar together,  Add all dry ingredients and mix. Beat eggs lightly , add all wet ingredients and mix. Pour into 3 round greased and floured cake pans (didn’t say what size – it was the 70’s… go with the flow.)

Bake 30-35 mins @ 350 degrees.  Makes a BIG 3 layer cake and requires a chocolate cream cheese frosting.

My sister made this as a sheet cake in a rectangular pan. She said it took 45 minutes to bake in that format.
