My little community has a bake sale the weekend before Valentine's Day to earn money for the Heritage Society. Here are my contributions for the sale.

TRIPLE CHOCOLATE CAKE

2 squares unsweetened chocolate squares
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 sticks butter

8 oz. sour cream
1/2 cup warm water
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 large eggs

In a saucepan, melt 2 squares chocolate, butter, and cocoa powder until melted. Set aside. In a bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt. Add chocolate mixture, sour cream, water and eggs. Add vanilla. Mix until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter into a bundt pan that has been well greased. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes. Remove from pan. I melted some chocolate chips and drizzled over or you can dust with powdered sugar.

That cinnamon roll cake is calling my name!

I agree about Fabio. I was sad to see him go, too!

And egg in your dumpling dough - that's new to me! I bet they're awesome.
