Sourdough Chocolate Cake
Yield: 12 servings

1/2 c sourdough starter
1 1/2 c all purpose flour
2 c sugar
3/4 c powdered cocoa (not instant)
2 ts baking powder
2 ts baking soda
1 c milk
1/2 c vegetable oil
3/4 c cold coffee
1 ts vanilla

Put the starter in a large bowl, cover loosely and allow to stand
at room temperature until active and bubbling -- at least one hour.
Then add the rest of the ingredients, in the order given, beating
well after each addition. It is not necessary to sift or premix
any of the ingredients as long as you are careful to get the baking
powder and soda evenly mixed.

Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans, pour in the batter,
which will be thin, and bake in a preheated 350. oven for about 30
minutes, or until the layers test done when poked with a toothpick.
The cake will have pulled away from the sides of the pan.

Allow to cool about 10 minutes before removing from pans, then
finish cooling the layers on wire racks. Do not frost until the
cake is completely cold.

A mild chocolate butter cream frosting is nice with this cake.
