1931 Sour Cream Devil's Food Chocolate Cake Recipe - Old Cookbook Show
Today Glen cooks up some culinary history from one of his old cookbooks on the Glen and friends old cookbook show.
2 cups sifted Swans Down Cake Flour
¼ tsp salt
1/3 cup butter or other shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg well beaten
1 tsp soda
½ cup sour cream
½ cup boiling water
2 squares Baker's Unsweetened Chocolate, melted **1 square = 1 ounce
Sift flour once, measure, add salt, and sift together three times. Cream butter thoroughly, add sugar gradually, and cream together until light and fluffy. Add egg and beat well. Dissolve soda in cream. Add flour to cake mixture, alternately with cream, a small amount at a time. Beat after each addition until smooth. Add water to chocolate, blend, and add to cake batter, heating well. Bake in two greased 9" layer pans in moderate oven (350ºF) 30 minutes. Put layers together and cover top of cake with Quick Chocolate Frosting.
Quick Chocolate Frosting Recipe:
4 squares Baker's Unsweetened Chocolate, cut in pieces **1 square = 1 ounce
1 1/4 cups cold condensed milk
1 tablespoon water
Add chocolate to milk, place over low flame, and cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Thin with water, a few drops at a time, until of right consistency to spread. Makes enough frosting to cover tops of two 9-inch layers.
