Sweet Orange Marmalade Glazed Chocolate Cake
One Bowl Chocolate Cake Recipe (from my mom’s Red Cookbook)
- One cup Butter
- Two Cups of sugar
- 2 Large Eggs or 3 Med Eggs
- 1 cup of milk
- Mix all the wet together in a large Bowl
- Add 3 cups of flour
- 1 cup of Coco Powder
- 1 tsp Salt
- 2 Tbsp Baking Powder
- Mix the dry into the wet, it will be a thick batter
- While doing the above, heat up water to just under boiling, once you are the thick batter stage, add one and half cups of very hot but not rapid boiling water and mix it in really fast. It will turn a lighter color as it mixes and will become a more normal cake batter in texture.
Into a greased 9 by 13 pan, bake at 350 till wooden toothpick come out clean. Cracks are normal on the top. It has a fine crumb to it
Marmalade Glaze Icing
Mix 1 cup of Orange Marmalade with half a cup of orange consecrate and half a cup of sugar, mix together, it will create a thin but very tasty glaze that will put on the cake while its still hot. Take cake out of oven, allow to cool a min or two.. take a wooden stick or large metal fork and gently poke holes about half way down into the cake over it, then pour and smooth the glaze over the still hot cake, part will melt down the holes and some will stay on top and become more solid as it gets cool.
This Cake will be a great one for both snacking and to be taken as work box cake for hubby for work days but beware that sticky top if you want to wrap it up.
