bosco: chocolate syrup

i was feeling a bit nostalgic and i fell into a bosco chocolate syrup mood. I found this great retromercial with dick van dyke and some very odd clowns...

bosco was developed by a new jersey physician using only natural cocoa and it has been around since 1928. countless mom's mixed bosco with milk for their children arriving home from school and alfred hitchcock used bosco chocolate syrup as fake blood in the psycho shower scene.

if your market does not carry bosco, you can get bosco from their online store! also check out the most adorable vintage t's!

5 minute bosco chocolate cake recipe...

if you need a quick chocolate cake fix, this is for you

preheat the oven to 350 degrees

put four eggs in a bowl and whisk

in a separate bowl, combine a bottle of bosco (22 ounces) with a stick of butter and mix well.

put the bosco mixture with the eggs, add 1 cup of sugar, and sift in 1 cup of flour. mix well.

pour in a greased and floured lasagna pan and bake for 20 minutes... the cake is finished when the center is bouncy.

stab the cake several times.

add 1/4 cup of your favorite liqueur (i used vermeer chocolate liqueur) to 2 cups of powdered sugar - mix well. pour over hot cake.

cut the cake in four even pieces, stack, and serve.
