Cook Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

* 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

* 1 3/4 cup sugar

* 4 large eggs

* 1/2 cup milk

* 1/2 cup butter or margarine

* 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour

* 1 teaspoon baking powder

* 1 teaspoon baking soda

* 1/2 teaspoon salt

* 1 cup sour cream

* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation:

In a saucepan over medium low heat, combine cocoa, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 egg yolk, and milk. Cook, stirring constantly to prevent sticking, until thickened. Cool.

Cream butter until light and fluffy; add remaining 1 cup of sugar, beating until well blended. Add 1 egg and 2 egg yolks; mix well. Stir in sifted dry ingredients alternately with sour cream.

Add vanilla and cocoa mixture.

Beat remaining (3) egg whites until stiff; fold into cake batter. Line bottoms of three 8-inch layer pans with wax paper. Pour batter evenly into the three pans.

Bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes. Turn out onto racks and peel off wax paper. Cool. Frost with Chocolate Butter Frosting or your favorite frosting.

Chocolate Butter Frosting

* 1 pound sifted confectioners’ sugar (about 4 1/4 cups sifted, 3 3/4 cups unsifted)

* dash salt

* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

* 3 squares melted unsweetened chocolate

* 3 tablespoons heavy cream or half-and-half (more or less)

Cream soft butter; gradually add sifted confectioners’ sugar. Add dash of salt, vanilla extract, melted chocolate, and about 3 tablespoons of cream. Beat until smooth and spreading consistency, adding more cream if necessary.
