Jimmy’s Chocolate Cake

Ingrients & Directions

is is my y nephew’s grandmother’s
: -(Edna Stave) recipe. It has
: -been in their mily for r years. As you see; it has
: -been updated by the use of
: -a microwave. e oven t temperature is correct. It
: -is a very dense cake.

Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Use a 10″ spring form pan. Grease pan,
sprinkle with flour. Leave quite a bit of flour in the pan.

In the microwave: melt
1/2 lb. butter 8 squares unsweetened (bitter) chocolate 2 cups hot
tap water Whisk to mix well.

Cake Ingredients

4 cups sifted flour 3 teaspoons baking soda 4 cups sugar 1 cup sour cream 4
beaten eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 4 teaspoons very strong coffee healthy
pinch chili powder

Blend eggs and sugar. Add coffee and sour cream. Blend. Add vanilla. Add
the dry ingredients.

Reheat the chocolate mix and add to above ingredients. It must be pretty
hot when added.

Pour into pan. Put pan on a baking sheet as it may overflow. Cook at 275
for two (2) hours. Anything that spills is your treat to eat.

You can cut this recipe in half and bake in a 10 x 14 pan. If you use this
method, bake at 350 for 35 minutes.

Frosting NOTE: ***Triple this recipe for the cake in the spring form pan.

1/2 cup sugar 1 heaping tablespoon flour Whisk to mix.

Add: 1 tablespoon butter 1 teaspoon vanilla pinch chili powder 1 teaspoon
strong coffee 2 squares bitter chocolate 1 cup milk

Put all ingredients in bowl and microwave for 6 minutes or more. Remove and
whisk. Return to microwave for 4 minutes. Remove and whisk again. Repeat
until the mixture resembles chocolate pudding. Pour on cake while hot.

I would imagine you could cook this frosting on the stove top or in a
double boiler. We are used to “nuking” it.

Jar Cakes

Ingrients & Directions

Ever baked cakes in canning jars? It’s neat! ANY quick bread-type cake
can be baked in canning jars.

I usually bake one jar first — you have to know how high the batter
rises. I usually fill ONE jar 1/2 full then bake it to see how high it
rises, then go from there. You don’t want the cake to come out of the top
of the jar, only to within 1/4 to 1/2 inch from the lip of the jar. Write
it down on your recipe (how far you filled the jars)! Once you’ve
established how high the cake rises, you can go from there. The first time
around is a bit tricky because you won’t know how many jars you’ll need.
MOST of the recipes I’ve tried I end up using around 8. Sterilize as many
jars as you think you’ll need and go from there. Make sure your LIDS are
new, the rings don’t have to be As the jars do seal, the cakes are as moist
as the day you put them into the jars–sometimes MORESO.

The baking times will vary — the moistness of each cake recipe will
determine the time. MOST of the recipes I’ve tried bake in 35-40 minutes.
Start checking the cakes at 25- 30 minutes and go from there.

YES, the cakes DO slide easily out of the jars IF you use the jars I’ve
listed. They’re Ball 12-oz Quilted Crystal Canning Jars (#14400-81400).
They can be found at most grocery stores (at least here in California) next
to the pectin and other canning supplies. Also, I’ve seen the 12 oz
straight-sided (plain) jars (# ?) at Smart & Final. The plain jars work
fine too but they’re not as pretty and you have to make your own
labels–the jars I use come with decorative labels. One IMPORTANT tip–get
your jars NOW! Once summer’s over with they’re very hard to find. Also,
when you can, ask for the jars back, they’re NOT cheap. Most folks don’t
mind returning them though, they usually want refills! G

There will be a little condensation on the lids and some in the jars so
when you seal them it’s trapped inside. Don’t worry about getting the water
off of the lids before placing them onto the jars, the added moisture
doesn’t hurt the cakes in the slightest. Quick bread-type cakes work best,
I’ve found that lighter cakes tend to fall when the jars seal.

I’m trying to address every question that’s been asked of me before, I
HOPE I’ve done that. If I’ve missed anything or if anyone has any
questions, don’t hesitate to ask. These make WONDERFUL Christmas gifts and
you cn start NOW! Single friends really appreciate these because each jar
makes enough for one or two people. I’ll post the recipes I’ve made in my
next notes. Try them, they’re FUN and delicious to boot! Be right back with
a few more tips…

Several folks have asked me how long the cakes can be safely stored…I’m
not sure. The longest I’ve been able to keep them (without getting eaten)
is 6 months. The jars DO seal, just like any canned good. You don’t have to
refrigerate the jars, just keep them in a COOL, dark, dry place. I’ve only
had 6 jars go bad on me and that was my fault…put them in a cupboard that
got too hot and the seals broke. I now check the jars at least once a week
by pushing down on the lid (in the middle); if the lid moves up and down,
that means the seal has broken. If you’ve checked the jars frequently, more
than likely they’re safe to eat; otherwise, toss the cake. I’ve been making
cakes in canning jars for over 3 years and haven’t poisoned anyone so far.
:) If you give the jars away, be sure to tell the person to check the jar
periodically (if they plan on storing it for any length of time).

Not only are the cakes tasty, they’re very pretty to decorate. A hot glue
gun is INVALUABLE! You cn glue on dried flowers, ribbons, dough-art …you
name it, it can be glued onto the lid, ring and side of the jar. I usually
cut out a piece of cloth (about 3 inches larger in circumference than the
lid), using pinking shears (so the cloth doesn’t unravel), place a wad of
cotton or batting in the center of the lid (take the ring off — the jar
lid should be sealed by now), then place the piece of cloth on top and
replace the ring. Decorate to your heart’s desire!

There are probably a few more tips I’ve forgotten…if anyone has any
questions, don’t hesitate to ask. Don’t limit yourself to the recipes I’ve
given you…ANY quick-bread type cake cn be baked in canning jars. Lighter
cakes tend to fall once the jar seals.

Be right back with the first recipe…

James Beard’s Orange Sundae 1-2-3-4 Cake

Ingrients & Directions


1 c Butter
2 c Sugar
4 Eggs
3 c Sifted cake flour
4 ts Baking powder
1 ts Salt; or more
1 c Milk
1 -(up to)
1 1/2 ts Vanilla

FROSTING
3/4 c Orange juice
2 tb Lemon juice
3/4 c Sugar
1 tb Grated orange rind

From: plgold@ix.netcom.com (Pat Gold)

Cream the butter and cream in the sugar until fluffy. If mixing by hand,
separate the eggs, blend the beaten yolks into the butter mixture, sift the
flour with the baking powder and salt, add alternately with the milk and
vanilla, and fold in the beaten whites last. If using a mixer, beat the
whole eggs in at medium to high speed, turn off the mixer and add the flour
mixture, then turn to lowest speed and add the milk and vanilla. When
smooth pour into a 10-inch tube pan or a 10 x 14 x 2-inch pan. Bake in a
moderate 350 degree oven until the cake springs back when touched lightly
with a fingertip or use the toothpick test. When baked, let the cake cool
10 minutes or more, loosen from the pan, and turn out on a rack.

Frosting: Mix 3/4 cup orange juice and 2 tablespoons lemon juice with 3/4
cup sugar. Add 1 tablespoon grated orange rind also, if you like. Drizzle
over the cake, being sure not to soak it all in one spot. Let the cake
cool.

Note: No baking time is given in the recipe for making this in a tube or
Bundt cake pan. My educated guess would be between 45 minutes and an hour
but I would keep a careful eye on the cake while baking.
