Recipe For Chocolate Yum-Yum Cake


1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened baking chocolate
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup raisins
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
Pinch salt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon milk


In a large saucepan over low heat, melt butter and chocolate, stirring constantly. Add sugar, raisins, water, cinnamon and cloves; bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat; pour into a mixing bowl and cool for 15 minutes. Add salt and vanilla. Combine flour and baking soda; add to chocolate mixture and mix well. Pour into a greased and floured 8-cup fluted tube pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool. Combine icing ingredients; spoon over cooled cake.
