Minnesota Fudge Cake

Fudge baths make you look approx. 30 years younger
(give or take a few minutes).
Minnesota is consistently rated as one of the best educated and healthiest poplulations in the U.S.A. Minnesotans are also expected to live the longest.  I'm convinced the reason for these statistics is the fact that every mom, aunt, uncle and grandmother makes Minnesota Fudge Cake on a regular basis. You will find this cake at every birthday party, family reunion, coffee morning and dessert table in Minnesota. We all know that chocolate decreases the risk of a stroke, increases insulin sensitivity, is full of antioxidants, is a great mood elevator, improves vision and even quiets coughs.  Chocolate consumption even improves blood flow and makes you smarter.  So the next time you're tempted to go see a doctor, do what the Minnesotans do and bake a fudge cake...guaranteed to make you feel better!!

Minnesota Fudge Cake
5 eggs
2 1/2 cups sugar
4 1/2 squares (oz) unsweetened chocolate
1 3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 t. vanilla
1/2 teas. red food coloring
1 1/2 teas. soda
1/2 teas. salt
3 cups flour

In a small saucepan beat one of the eggs, add one cup of the sugar, the chocolate and 3/4 cup of the milk. Cook, stirring, over low hear, until the chocolate melts and the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Cool to room temperature. Mix the butter and remaining sugar until it is fluffy; add the vanilla and coloring. Add the remaining eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Add the dry ingredients (mixed together), alternately with the remaining milk, beating until smooth. Blend in the chocolate mixture. Pour into 3 buttered and floured layer pans. Bake at 350F./180C. for 25-30 minutes. Cool and frost with your favorite frosting.
