MYSTERY MOCK CAKE

This dessert was a favorite of mine from early childhood. It is best served still warm with fresh whipped cream on top.

3/4 cup sugar
1 cup sifted cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 square unsweetened chocolate
2 tbsp butter
1/2 cup whole milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
4 tbsp cocoa
1 cup cold coffee

Mix and sift the first four ingredients.
Melt the chocolate and butter together and add to the first mixture. Blend well. Combine milk, vanilla and nutmeg to mixture and fold in well. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan.

Combine the last four ingredients and pour over the top of the mixture in the pan. Bake for 35 -40 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Best if served while still warm and with real whipped cream.

I am going to make that.  I have been wanting to make a cake from scratch.

I'm not one for store bought cakes or other desserts. When I make them from scratch I know what's in them, and can add or change the stuff in them to suit my own tastes. 

This one is a must try.

Yep, nothing like something made from scratch, I would like to make this one.

Ladies,

Some years back, my daughter was in a Home Ec. class and got the recipe for making a lemon meringue pie from scratch.  She made one for my wife's birthday and it was great.  The reason she made it from scratch is that my wife is diabetic and shouldn't have much sugar.  She used artificial sweetener instead.  I think that she might still have the recipe filed away.  If she can find it, I'll post it here.

If the artificial sweetener worked I would love to see it also.  For my recipe above, my sister tried it once with an artificial sweetener and margarine and it failed badly. It didn't rise at all (not that this rises a lot to begin with) and had a terrible taste. For this cake only the truly bad things like white sugar and real butter will do.

It worked great.  I couldn't tell the difference and usually I can tell.  It may have been the particular kind of sweetener that she used.  I'll find that out too.
