Chocolate Brandy Cake
Melted And Cooled
dark brown sugar
Whipped cream (optional)
Sift the flour with the baking powder, baking soda, salt, 3/4 cup of the
sugar, cinnamon and half the cocoa. Set aside. In a bowl, combine the
milk, cream and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry
ingredients along with the melted butter. Stir to make a thick batter.
Spread evenly in an ungreased 9 inch baking pan.
In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, remaining granulated sugar and
remaining cocoa. Sprinkle evenly over the batter.
Combine the brandy and the water and pour over the top of the batter. Bake
in a preheated 350 degree oven for 50 minutes. The cake will be set
around the sides and the top will be very loose and bubbly.
Cool in the pan on a rack for an hour or more.
