Fudge Layer Cake
Total TimePrep: 45 min. + chilling Bake: 30 min. + cooling
Pretty much straight out of “Farm Jounal’s” cookbook, except they use unsweetened chocolate squares, and the fudge frosted was altered here. Here’s Farm Journal’s frosting: 2c sugar 1/4 t salt 1c light cream 2 T light corn syrup 2 squares unsweetened chocolate Cook the sugar, salt,,cream, corn syrup, and chocolate over low heat stirring until sugar dissolves. Cover 2-3 min. Remove lid cook to softball stage (234). Beat to spreading consistency. Add a little hot water if too stiff, and confectioner sugar if too thin. Date Filling correct directions: Combine 1c milk & 1/2 c chopped dates in top of double boiler. Combine 1T flour & 1/4c sugar; add 1 beaten egg, blending until smooth. Add to hot milk mixture. Cook stirring until thick. Cool. Stir in 1/2c chopped nuts & 1t vanilla. Spread between layers. Hope that helps.
I left the dates out of it and it was WONDERFUL!! Try it both ways!
