"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

1 1/4 cups white sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
3 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup Irish Cream liqueur

addition. Blend in the sour cream and Irish cream liqueur;
