"Grandma's" Chocolate Cake
This cake is a classic chocolate cake. Moist, rich, and oh, so chocolatey. CAKE: ½ cup + 2 tablespoons shortening 1 cup sugar 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla ½ cup hot water ¼ cup cocoa powder 1 teaspoon baking soda ¼ teaspoon salt 1½ cups milk 2½ cups flour FROSTING: ½ cup butter 3 tablespoons cocoa powder 2½ cups powdered sugar 2 tablespoon milk (more or less for consistency) Instructions Cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. In a small bowl or cup, mix hot water with cocoa powder, soda and salt. Add chocolate mixture to shortening mixture, and mix well. Add milk and flour alternately, scraping down sides as needed, mixing until smooth and consistent. Pour equal amounts of batter into two greased 9-inch rounds (or one 9x13). Bake at 350F for 28-35 minutes. A toothpick inserted near the center should come out clean. Let cool. For frosting, combine all ingredients, using a mixer to beat mixture well, until smooth and fluffy. Frost cooled layers.
