Total Calories: 1,301


1 1/2 cups butter (3 sticks), softened
2 2/3 cups sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 eggs
2 cups flour
1 cup baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)


Grease 2 round cake pans. Heat oven to 350°. Cream butter, sugar, vanilla, and eggs in one bowl. In another bowl, combine flour, baking cocoa, salt, and nuts. Mix together. Batter may be stiff, and that’s okay. Spread it out in the round cake pans. Bake until set, 30 minutes or so. Don’t over bake, as they will continue to bake a little while as they are cooling.
