Nana Lila's Chocolate Cake

I'd Rather Fight Than Switch

Yeah, yeah, it's the old Tareyton cigarette slogan, but it's mine too when it comes to chocolate cake. So maybe I don't have a black eye like the Tareyton cowboy, but I must have these and only these ingredients to bake this cake. It's been in the family for generations and, as you can tell by my seventh grade printing and handwriting, it's one of the first things my Nana Lila taught me how to make. I even left the apostrophe off of Grandmother's. How do you like that? Don't tell any of my first graders, should you happen to know them! Anyway, without further ado, I'm going to share:

Grandmother's Chocolate Cake

1/2 cup Challenge unsalted butter

1 and 1/4 cup C&H Golden Brown Sugar

2 large eggs

3 oz. unsweetened Baker's chocolate melted and cooled

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon high quality vanilla
