Ingredients Rorer’s Chocolate Cake :

2 ounces of chocolate,
4 eggs,
½ a cup of milk,
1 teaspoonful of vanilla,
½ a cup of butter,
1 ½ cups of sugar,
2 heaping teaspoonful of baking powder,
1 ¾ cups of flour.

Step Rorer’s Chocolate Cake :

Dissolve the chocolate in five tablespoonfuls of boiling water. Beat the butter to a cream, add the yolks, beat again, then the milk, then the melted chocolate and flour. Give the whole a vigorous beating. Now beat the whites of the eggs to a stiff froth, and stir them carefully into the mixture; add the vanilla and baking powder. Mix quickly and lightly, turn into well-greased cake pan and bake in a moderate oven forty-five minutes.—From Mrs. Rorer’s Cook Book.
