This recipe was given to me when I was needing to make a "fancy" cake. It has become a favorite. The cake is so moist and the frosting is delicious! This cake will make you look like you went to a lot of work to make but really didn't.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Mix together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.
  2. Add oil, vinegar, water and vanilla.
  3. Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  4. Pour into greased 9x13pan or(2)8 inch round pans. It will be runny.
  5. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
  6. Let cool.
  7. For frosting, cook flour and milk together until thick. Let cool completely.
  8. In large bowl beat margarine and crisco for 4 minutes.
  9. Add sugar and beat 4 minutes.
  10. Stir in cooled cooked mixture and vanilla and beat another 4 minutes.
  11. Frost when cake is cool. I make swirls and add either chocolate shavings or a cut up strawberry on top to make it look fancy.
  12. Enjoy!

This is a great cake recipe. It was night and I had a mood for chocolate cake, but I didn't have any eggs in the house! This needs a little more chocolatey taste, but it was great! I used hot chocolate mix instead of cocoa, and it had a ok taste. I also made it into cupcakes without frosting. Good!
