Sourdough Chocolate Cake

1 cup starter
1 cup milk
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 cup cocoa
2 eggs

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 stick butter, softened
3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
milk for consistency

Combine the starter, milk and flour. Let this sponge work for 2-3
hours in a warm place until it's bubbly and it has a pleasing sour
milk aroma.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a second bowl, cream the sugar, oil, salt, vanilla, baking soda
and cocoa. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each
addition. You want to incorporate as much air as possible in this

Combine the creamed mixture with the sourdough mixture. Do this as
gently as possible but make sure it's well blended.

Grease two 9-inch cake pans, divide the cake batter between them
and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until done. After five minutes,
remove the cakes from their pans and cool on a wire rack.

After the layers are thoroughly cooled, top them with your choice
of frosting.

Frosting: Mix butter and cream cheese and powdered sugar at medium
speed add vanilla and milk till desired consistency.
