"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

6 ounces unsweetened chocolate
2 cups sugar

Directions:
Heat oven to 350F. Lightly grease and flour 2 8-inch layer cake pans. Melt the chocolate. Set aside to cool slightly. Combine the sugar, flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, blend the hot water, sour cream and vegetable oil with a whisk. With the mixer on low speed, add the sour cream mixture in a stream to the dry ingredients and mix until blended. Stop the mixer to scrape the bowl so lumps don't form. Add the eggs 1 at a time and mix on low speed after each addition until smooth. Add the chocolate and mix until the batter is uniform in color. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared pans. Bake until the cake springs back to the touch, about 35-40 minutes. Place on wire racks for cooling. Fill and frost with Buttery Chocolate Frosting.
