How did I get here from there OR Uncle Abe’s Favorite Chocolate Cake

Filed under: Uncategorized — Towse @ 6:37 am

There’s been some talk over at Scott Adam’s blog as to what he should buy his fiancĂ©e for Christmas.

(I, of course, nudged him to buy her a 100% cotton woven throw with a picture of Ada Lovelace)

Someone else mentioned that he’d never go wrong if he bought something off Oprah’s Favorite Things list.

Huh? I said. So I went off to investigate and found (among other more appropriate gifts) this recipe for Uncle Abe’s Favorite Chocolate Cake.

Ingredients for cake/filling/glaze are:

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 10 oz. + 4 oz bittersweet chocolate
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1C + 1 Tbsp. plus 2 tsp. sugar
  • 1t. vanilla extract
  • 2C + 1/2C heavy cream

… and that’s basically it! What’s not to like?
