Birthday Leftovers

Not much left of the requested big ole chocolate cake…..especially after that humungus dinner.  This is a great chocolate cake recipe…soft, moist and crumbly and best of all chocolatey.  And the frosting…a fudgey delight.


2 cups sugar

1 cup oil

2 eggs

1/2 cup water

2 tsp espresso powder

3 Tbsp cocoa

2 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup boiling water

Cream together sugar and eggs, then add eggs.  Dissolve espresso powder and cocoa in 1/2 cup water.  Add that and vanilla and thoroughly combine.  Add dry ingredients alternately with boiling water.  Bake in greased 10X13 pan for 30-45 minutes.


Combine in the top of a double boiler over boiling water:

1 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk

1 Tbsp water

1/8 tsp salt

2 1oz squares of unsweetened chocolate

Cook over boilng water until thick, stirring frequently.


And guess what Girlie got for her birthday???????

I believe she has a matching picture of me in her camera.
