       Yield: 8 servings
       3    Chocolate squares,unsweetene
   2 1/2 c  Cake flour,sifted
       2 ts Baking soda
     1/2 ts Salt
     1/2 c  Butter,at room temperature
   2 1/2 c  Brown sugar,firmly packed
       3    Egg,at room temperature
   1 1/2 ts Vanilla
       1 c  Sour cream
     3/4 c  Water,boiling
   1. Preheat oven to 325'F.
   2. Melt chocolate on a large square of aluminum foil in a very low
   oven, bringing up edges of foil to prevent spillage. Cool to room
   3. Grease and flour an oblong shallow baking pan, preferably glass,
   4. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt onto waxed paper and set aside.
   5. Beat butter in a large bowl until very light and fluffy (easier
   with an electric mixer). Add brown sugar and beat until very fluffy
   and no trace of sugary ”grittiness" remains. Add eggs and beat until
   well blended, then stir in melted chocolate and vanilla. Add flour
   mixture alternately with sour cream, beating after each addition with
   a wooden spoon. Add boiling water and stir in well.
   6. At this stage the batter will be thin. Pour at once into prepared
   pan and bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until cake tests
   done. Turn out onto cake rack and frost with Chocolate-Peanut Butter
   Frosting (recipe follows) or cut into squares and serve with whipped
   cream or vanilla ice cream.
