Sometimes it only takes a beautiful spring day to bring out a celebration mood. Bake a cake just because the sun is shining. Bake a cake just because the garden’s up. Or because your kids came in from doing chores before you asked them to do them. This cake is old-fashioned but only takes a few minutes to mix up. It can be baked in layers, but is just as wonderful in a long pan with extra thick frosting on top.

Sour Cream Chocolate Cake

3 squares (3 ounces) chocolate, melted
1/4 cup boiling water
2 cups sifted cake flour
1-1/4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup thick dairy sour cream
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
2 eggs, beaten
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two nine-inch cake pans or a 13x9x2 inch pan.

Mix chocolate and boiling water together, set aside to cool.
