Fudge Cake
by Mary Frymoyer Brown 1954

1/2 C margarine or butter
2 squares chocolate
1/2 C water
1 C sugar
1 egg
1 C flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp soda
1/4 C sour milk
1 tsp vanilla

Sift together flour, salt, baking powder and soda. Melt butter and chocolate, add water and sugar. Cool. Add egg. Beat. Add dry ingredients, sour milk and vanilla. Bake at 350 degrees about 30 minutes (Look after 25 minutes.) A moist, easy to make chocolate cake. Always a hit - was my grandmother's favorite.

-------

The consensus is that buttermilk can be used for sour milk. I wish the size of chocolate square had been mentioned, though, a baker's chocolate square? Hmmmmmm.

this is similar to my grandmother's "chocolate sheet cake".

I should mention the 1954 means that Mary graduated from college in 1954, since this came from an alumnae cookbook.
