#THE SEWING GOURMET...

...it's been a while since THE SEWING GOURMET made an appearance.  She's back with a real goody this time.  I thought I'd share my 14 Layer Chocolate Cake
The beginning process

What the cake look like after placing it in the teacher's lounge before 8:00a.m. this morning.  Needless to say, it was all gone by noon (and I was glad - I love it when people enjoy my food).  I'm proud to say that I only had one normal sized slice myself.  Got to make sure I keep this girlish figure (hahaha)!  This was my second time making this sweet southern delicacy - it is a real labor of love I'll tell you that!  Just in case you'd ever like to give it a try one day yourself here's the calorie loaded recipe.  




14 LAYER CHOCOLATE CAKE
1 stick butter
1 c. oil
6 eggs
3 c. self rising flour
2 T. vanilla
1 c. milk
2 c. sugar
Pre-heat oven to 500 degrees.  Mix all ingredients together.  Grease skillets (flat thin skillets) and pour 3 tablespoons batter into cast iron skillet.  Bake three (3) minutes only!!!, baking longer will cause the layers to burn.

ICING 
6 heaping T cocoa
1 c. evaporated milk
1 c. karo syrup
2 ½ c. sugar
1 ½ stick butter
Bring to a slow boil and continue to stir until mixture reaches a thick consistency.
Allow cake layers to cool, then ice.  Serve, enjoy, and then run around the block 3 times…

  1. looks very similar to a Smith Island cake- Md eastern shore specialty. There's a video on youtube to check out that one if you're curious.
    Lucky co-workers!
