A lady on a local radio call-in show got talking about this cake one day and the station was swamped with request for the recipe. It sounded good to me too so I also requested it and thought I'd share it here.
- For cake: Cream margarine and sugar; then add eggs one at a time and beat well, after each.
- Sift dry ingredients and add to above mixture.
- Add syrup and bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes in 13x9 inch pan.
- Do not over bake.
- Ice while hot.
- For icing: Boil margarine, milk and sugar together for two to three minutes.
- Add chocolate chips, beat until smooth.
- Pour on cake.
This was OK. We wouldn't make it again. It's very sweet with the sugar and all that syrup and the texture was more brownie-like than cake-like.
This was a very good cake, moist and rich and fluffy. The icing, I was not a fan of; I think I may have over-boiled? Or maybe the sugar didn't dissolve right. But it was so sweet, I don't think I would have liked the taste as much even if the texture had been better. Icing was also a LEETLE too runny for me, since I love to eat my cake hot out of the oven. When it hardened up, it was kind of grainy. But the cake itself was wonderful. Next time I make it-- I WILL make it again, for sure! I will just use a different icing.
This is a great cake! The best chocolate cake I have ever eaten. A lady that I work with gave me this same recipe. Well the ingredients is what she really gave me. So I came here on zaar to see if it was here. It was. So now I have the steps to make it. The icing ingredients I had were a little bit different. 1/3 cup evaporatied milk, 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 tsp. vanilla.
