MIZ EFFIE'S SOUR CREAM CHOCOLATE CAKE

I have no idea who Miz Effie was.

2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsps baking soda
2 cups sugar
pinch salt
3 tbsps cocoa
2 cups sour cream
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sift the flour, sugar, salt, cocoa. Add cream, eggs, and vanilla. Beat well and pour into large 9x13 pan that has been greased and floured. Bake 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

FROSTING:

2 1/2 cups sugar
2 tbsps cocoa
1 1/2 tbsps white syrup
3/4 cup cream
2 tbsps butter
vanilla

Cook the first 4 ingredients to a soft ball stage. Add butter and vanilla. Cool 45 minutes before beating and pour over cake. Never stir until it has cooled about 45 minutes.

If you milk and have cream, this is an easy and good cake.
