Sour Cream Fudge Cake
2 cups sifted cake flour
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup sour cream
3 ounces (3 squares) unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup hot water or hot coffee
Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease bottom of 13x9x1-1/2 inch pan, line with wax paper and grease paper.
Sift together flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. Add shortening, and sour cream and beat 2 minutes. Add chocolate, eggs, vanilla and hot water and beat 2 minutes longer.
Turn batter into prepared pan and bake until cake rebounds to touch when pressed gently in center, about 25 minutes.
Cool cake in pan 5 minutes. Turn out on rack, remove paper and cool. Frost as desired. To serve, cut into squares.
*** My Fudge Frosting which I posted before in this Forum would go great with this cake!
