How to make it

  • 1)Preheat oven to 350º.
  • 2)Microwave chocolate, water and ½ cup of the sugar in a microwavable bowl on HIGH 1 to 2 minutes until chocolate is almost melted, stirring halfway through heating time. Remove from microwave. Stir until completely melted. Cool to lukewarm.
  • 3)Mix flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. Beat margarine and the remaining 1 ¼ cups of sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. One at a time, add eggs, beating well after each addition. Add flour mixture alternately with milk, beating after each addition until smooth. Stir in chocolate mixture and vanilla extract. Pour into 2 greased and floured 9-inch round layer pans.
  • 4)Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly pressed. Cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove from pans to cool on a wire rack. Frost with Fudge frosting and sprinkle walnuts around the top edge of the cake.
  • Fudge Frosting:
  • Microwave 4 squares of Baker's Unsweetened Chocolate and 2 Tbs. margarine or butter in a large microwavable bowl on HIGH for 1 to 2 minutes or until margarine is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in 4 cups of powdered sugar, ½ cup milk and 1 tsp. Vanilla extract until smooth. Let stand, if necessary until ready to spread ( spreading consistency ) stir occasionally. Spread quickly. ( Add an additional 2 to 3 tsp. Of milk if the frosting becomes too thick.) Makes about 2 ½ cups or enough to frost tops and sides of 2 9-inch layer cakes.
