Yellow Cake with Chocolate Frosting

Until my friends Connie and Mary shared this recipe, I thought chocolate cake was the only cake to crave.  This one breaks all the rules.  It is incredible - you will want it for every birthday!  Nancy

2 c sugar
4 eggs
1 c vegetable oil
1 c dry white wine
2 1/2 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat the oven to 350F and grease and flour two 9 inch round cake pans.  Beat the sugar and eggs until light (about a minute.)  Add the remaining ingredients and mix another minute.  Bake about 30 minutes or until knife comes out clean.  Cool and frost with this delightful frosting:

1 1/2 c chocolate chips
1/2 c unsalted butter
2/3 c of milk or cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 c powdered sugar

Fresh blackberries

Melt butter and chips in microwave, 30 seconds at a time, stirring until melted.  Stir in cream and vanilla and then gradually add the sugar and beat until the mixture is smooth with electric mixer - it will be runny.  Refrigerate for an hour , beating the frosting every 15 minutes.  Frost cake and top with fresh blackberries.
