This recipe makes a very nice chocolate cake. I would be proud of inventing it, except that at the time I was trying to blend various brownie recipes to make a better brownie.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease one or two 9 x 9 pans, depending upon if you want the cake to have two layers or not.
In a mixer, start (and keep it going) mixing:
While the mixer is going, sift together into a bowl and set aside:
Then, while the mixer is still going, melt into a medium saucepan:
and when the butter melts add:
Wait until the mixer has been going at least 10 minutes, if it has not been that long already. Then combine into the mixer:
Mix just enough so the ingredients are evenly combined.
Transfer batter to the greased pan and bake for about 45 minutes. When done baking the top will be firmly springy and a toothpick will come out clean.
