Cake Ambassador Chocolate

Queen Bee posted 02-18-99 .

Ambassador Chocolate Cake
1/2 cup cocoa(use Dutch process cocoa if you can)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 cup cold water
2/3 cup butter
1 3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 11/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sour milk

Method: Preheat oven to 375 degrees and prepare two 9" round cake pans. Sift the flour and salt together. Mix cocoa, baking soda and water to a smooth paste and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream butter until soft and add vanilla. Gradually add sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. Mix in the chocolate mixture. Beat the eggs until they're foamy and add them to the sugar mixture. Alternately add the flour mix and the milk to the sugar mix.(starting and ending with the flour).

Bake for 25 minutes or until a long toothpick or wooden skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean. To prepare this cake for serving my family uses cherry jam mixed with almond butter to hold the layers together and then we dust icing sugar over the top.
