Sour Cream Chocolate Cake

3 c flour

2 c sugar

7 Tbs cocoa

2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder                    Blend

¾ c butter or margarine              Cut in

2 eggs                                          Beat,

1 c sour cream                            add and beat,

1 t vanilla                                    add. This will be very thick until you add

1 c boiling water                          Beat thoroughly

Bake @ 375o

This recipe was given me years ago by our neighbor, Mrs. Simpson, who was an incredible cook.  It is one of the most chocolate spattered pages in my hand written cook book. I often make it when I buy a new container of sour cream, and the old one can be used up to make space in the refrigerator.  It makes a generous 9x13 inch pan, or you can bake it in a bundt pan for a different look.
