    Grease, or line with waxed paper, an 8 inch square cake tin.

    2 Squares of unsweetened chocolate
    1/2 cup shortening or butter
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (real not artificial)
    1 cup sugar
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup (un-sifted) all purpose flour
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts or raisins or coconut

    Melt chocolate over hot water (or over very low heat on the stove top), together with the butter or shortening.
    Then stir in the sugar, salt, and vanilla. Make sure it is cool enough, then stir in the eggs, (otherwise they will cook) one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the flour a bit at a time and blend well. Add the walnuts, or raisins or coconut and stir until well mixed. .

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

    Pour the batter into the cake tin. (use a spatula to scrape the mixing bowl).
    Put in the oven on the second rack. (Top rack is first.) and bake 25 to 30 minutes.

    Check at 25 minutes.
    It’s done when a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. (If the knife is not clean it’s obvious.) Don’t go longer than 5 minutes before checking again.

    Notes from me:

    I always use butter.
    Large eggs work best.
    Plump the raisins by putting them in hot water for a few minutes then measure the 1/2 cup.
    I always add a 1/2 cup of shredded coconut to the batter as well as raisins. I never use walnuts because I’m not fond of them.
    After removing the pan from the oven cover it with a tray or cookie sheet while cooling. It keeps them moist.

    the aftermath looks fairly peaceful, but just before momma witch came in, the room was filled with the screams of the little girl as the witch devoured her internal organs while she was still alive and then stripped and masticated the meat off her bones ….speaking of which, where’s the bones and the puddle of blood?

    This is reminiscent of Wednesday Addams question about girl scout cookies, “Are they made from real Girl Scouts?”
