Yummy Chocolate Cake

Kim is all over desserts today for her tried and true Thanksgiving recipes. I don't think I have actually made this cake for Thanksgiving. But, it is the cake I make most often and it is yummy!

Chocolate Syrup Cake
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
pinch salt
1 can chocolate syrup

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup evaporated milk
1/3 cup chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. For cake, cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture. Add chocolate syrup and beat, mixing well. Pour batter into greased 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes.

For frosting, bring butter, sugar and evaporated milk to boil in medium saucepan. Boil for 2 minutes. Turn off heat and add chocolate chips, vanilla and chopped nuts. Stir until chips are melted. Immediately pour over warm cake.

Variation: For brownies, bake in a greased jelly roll pan for 20-25 minutes.

Enjoy! Don't forget to check out Kim's blog for other Thnksgiving dessert ideas. God bless!
