How to make it

  • Preparation for cake batter:
  • Preparation
  • Melt semisweet chocolate morsels in a microwave-safe bowl at HIGH for 30-second intervals until melted (about 1 1/2 minutes total time). Stir until smooth.
  • Beat butter and brown sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer, beating about 5 minutes or until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition. Add melted chocolate, beating just until blended.
  • Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to chocolate mixture alternately with sour cream, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed just until blended after each addition. Gradually add 1 cup hot water in a slow, steady stream, beating at low speed just until blended. Stir in vanilla.
  • Spoon batter evenly into 3 greased and floured 8-inch square pans. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pans, and let cool completely on wire rack.

Stir until smooth, and spread in a 1/4-inch-thick layer on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle evenly with almonds. Chill 30 minutes or until firm. Remove from baking sheet, and chop.
  • Spread Vanilla Buttercream Frosting between layers and on top and sides of cake. Press chopped white chocolate mixture into top and sides of cake. If desired, tie a decorative ribbon around sides

    I wish we had a forum to post on but this will have to do. I will post this on the appropriate sights.

    My turn:

    Equalizer is not me. He is a para-legal for my lawyer. He has been on this site gathering all your tasty little words to MR Mountainmama etc, etc, etc. When you picked me to decide I was MR. You picked the wrong person.You do not want me or my husband and family as your enemy.

    I asked you to stop, but you continued. He has every thread. EVERY THREAD. There will be a civil and possibly a military action taken against you.

    So keep on being nasty bullies and writing what you can and stealing pictures. The more we have the better
