6 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1 medium yellow onion, (6 or 7 ounces), finely diced (1 cup)
1 cup Crisco® Vegetable Oil, divided
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk, soured with 1 Tablespoon vanilla
Fudge icing

Melt chocolate in saucepan, stirring over low heat, or in microwave oven. Sauté onion in 2 tablespoons oil in skillet until very soft and buttery-sweet. Using electric mixer in large bowl, beat remaining oil with sugar, eggs and vanilla until thoroughly mixed and fluffy, about 2 or 3 minutes. Beat in warm melted chocolate and sautéed onions. Mix flour with baking soda and salt; stir into batter alternately with milk. Divide batter evenly into two well-greased and floured 8-inch round layer cake pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until a pick inserted into center comes out dry. Cool 15 minutes then invert onto wire racks to cool. Frost and fill with fudge icing.
