Mystery Mocha Cake
3/4 C granulated sugar, plus 1/2 C
1 C all-purpose flour
2 t baking powder
1 1-ounce square semisweet chocolate (I used 2 1/2 T chocolate chips)
2 T butter
1/2 C milk
1 t vanilla extract
4 T cocoa
1/2 C packed light brown sugar
1 C coffee (liquid) (You can save a cup from the morning)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-inch square pan. Mix together the 3/4 C granulated sugar, flour, and baking powder.
Melt together chocolate and butter in a saucepan and add to flour mixture. Add milk and vanilla, mixing well. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Combine the 1/2 C granulated sugar, cocoa and brown sugar. Sprinkle over batter. Pour coffee on top of this and do not stir. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Served best warm.
This recipe seems very strange, but it turns out great, and the best part is that it makes its own chocolate syrup!
