Yesterday, I found a second container of sour cream, which had to be used soon. In the pantry there were leftover bags of semi-sweet morsels from baking holiday chocolate chips. So wouldn't it be GREAT to find an easy recipe which used BOTH these items? I did in the All New Joy of Cooking. This hefty (1100+ pages) volume doesn't have photos, but it has lots of recipes and is one of my essential recipe books
Try this cake - it's got lots going for it: easy recipe, not too many ingredients (all of which you probably already have on hand) and it's delicious, just ask Grenville - the official F&P food taster.
