GOLDEN CAKE with CHOCOLATE FUDGE FROSTING

In an effort to clean out my magazines and cookbooklets, I've decided to join Magazine Mondays hosted by Cream Puffs in Venice. What I really like is that she isn't strict about when you post so I can publish these yummy results as I find them.

GOLDEN CAKE with CHOCOLATE FUDGE FROSTING
8 large egg yolks
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon orange extract
1 1/4 cups cake flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Lightly beat the egg yolks.
  • Add sugar gradually and then the boiling water gradually while continuously beating.
  • Add orange extract.
  • Sift flour and baking powder together 3 times.
  • Gradually beat into egg mixture.
  • Bake in an un-greased angel food or Bundt pan for 45 minutes.
  • Turn upside down and cool for an hour.
CHOCOLATE FUDGE FROSTING
1 tablespoon butter, melted
2 ounces, unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
4-6 tablespoons milk
  • Scald milk.

This is just the kind of cake I really like. I am not a big fan of chocolate on cake so I would probably use a white or cream cheese frosting instead! Thanks for sharing!
