Cat's Classic Chocolate Cake

I just love that alliteration. But I love this cake more. And Catharine even more! :)


1/2 cup dark corn syrup
1/2 cup butter
1 cup chocolate morsels
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup flour
1 cup chopped walnuts


2/3 cup chocolate morsels
2 tbsp butter
4 tbsp dark corn syrup
2 tsp milk

***Chopped nuts and fresh raspberries as topping


Preheat over to 350. Grease and flour 9 inch baking pan. Combine corn suryp and butter in a sauce pan, boil, stir continuously. Add chocolate until melted. Remove from heat. Add sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Blend in flour and walnuts. Pour mixture into pan. Bake until toothpick comes out clean , 30 mins. Cool and then turn out.

For glaze, combine chocolate, butter and corn syrup in a sauce pan, cook over low heat until chocolate melts. Remove from heat; stir in milk. Pour over cake. Let stand and serve with fruit and nut toppings - or preserves like Catharine does.
