Poster: Corun MacAnndra <corun@access.digex.net>

Greetings fellow food-o-philes,

I just got this from someone who saw it on the Northdield mailing list
and I just had to pass it on. Looks pretty yummy.

In service,

transcribers note:  This is the original recipe as used by the 
barbarian swordsman.  Amounts and instructions for somewhat more 
conventional kitchens are given in parentheses.

First, round up the prisoners and have them make a good fire.  Pile 
shields around it to hold in heat.(Preheat oven to 350.)

Assemble ingredients:
   Butter the size of a good spear head (1 stick butter or margarine)
   A good big fistful of brown sugar (1/2 cup brown sugar,packed)
   A big fistful of white sugar (1/2 cup white sugar)
   A couple of eggs (2 large eggs)
   A good splash of vanilla (2 teaspoons vanilla extract)
   Secret Magic Ingredient (2 Tablespoons blackstrap molasses)
   Milk from a chocolate cow (2/3 cup chocolate milk)
   A small fistful of cocoa (1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa)
   Two or three fistfuls of flour (1 cup flour)
   Pinch of salt (1/2 teaspoon salt)
   Two pinches soda (1 teaspoon baking soda)
   Hunk of chocolate, hacked into bits with second best sword (1 6-oz 
          package semisweet chocolate chips)

Pick a small shield and clean it, then grease it up good. Sprinkle 
in a little flour and save it for later. (Grease & flour a 13"x
9" pan)
In somebody else's helm, beat butter, brown sugar and white sugar 
together--- make sure helm is clean before using! Add eggs & beat 
some more.  Add vanilla and Secret Magic Ingredient and beat it all 
again. (In a bowl, cream butter or margarine until fluffy. Add brown 
sugar and white sugar and mix thoroughly.  Add eggs, vanilla and 
molasses,  beating well after each addition.)
Stir flour, cocoa, salt and soda together in whatever is handy.  Add 
to batter, alternating with milk.  Beat real good.  Stir in chocolate 
pieces. (In a separate container, stir in flour, cocoa, salt and 
baking soda together. Beat into butter mixture, alternating with 
chocolate milk.  Beat for 1-2 min, then fold in chocolate chips.)
Dump batter into greased shield.  Bake next to fire while gathering 
loot.  Give helm back to sucker who let you mix cake in it; promise 
him first piece if he gets too mad.  eat warm while counting loot.  
Serves two.  (Pour batter into greased and floured 13" x 9" pan. Bake 
35-40 minutes.  Cake should be sort of flat and solid, not light and 
puffy.  Let cool before cutting, or the pieces will fall apart and 
gooey chocolate chips will get all over everything.  Sprinkle with 
powdered sugar or top with whipped cream.  Serves a lot more than 
two, even if everybody really likes chocolate.)
