2½ teaspoons baking powder

Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together.

Add alternately with the combined milk and vanilla.

Turn the batter into a greased and floured 9-inch round layer cake pan.

Bake in a 350°F oven for about 30 minutes, or until the cake springs back when lightly touched 
in the center.

Cool on a rack for 5 minutes, then turn out and cool completely.

Place the cake on a serving plate and split horizontally into two layers with a serrated knife.

Carefully remove the top layer.

Fill with the chilled Cream Filling.

Replace the top half and pour the warm Chocolate Icing over the top, spreading only to the

and filling seem almost as one.)

¼ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon vanilla

1½ cups milk

Combine the sugar, flour, and salt in a saucepan.

Boil, stirring for 1 minute.

Beat the egg yolks slightly.

Gradually stir in about half the thickened sauce.

Return to the heat and cook.

Stirring 2 or 3 minutes longer to take away the flour taste.

Remove from the heat and blend in the butter.

Strain into a bowl.

Cool for a few minutes, and then blend in the vanilla.

Cover and cool, then chill.

Chocolate Icing:

2 squares of chocolate

1 cup sifted icing sugar

2 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoons hot water

1 teaspoon vanilla

Melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave on medium low power.

Stir until smooth, and blend in the icing sugar and hot water.
