Chocolate Sheath Cake

READY IN: 40mins
Top Review by gquickel

Butter is better than oleo. Baking powder and salt are not really necessary. I have never tried baking a cake at 400 but it may work. I have always made this cake like this one, without adding the vegetable oil , but a 1/2 cup of vegetable oil would really make it moist. I may try it next time.

Then add eggs, buttermilk, soda, baking powder and vanilla. Mix and bake in well greased and floured jelly roll pan or a 9 x 13-inch cake pan, about 400° for 20 minutes or until done. Ten or fifteen minutes after putting cake in oven, make icing and spread on cake as soon as it's done.
