READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by mailbelle

Johnny Cash was my husband's cousin and I was lucky enough to obtain a cookbook of Johnny's mother's recipes titled, "Favorite Recipes From Mama Cash's Kitchen." I've been asked to post some of the recipes from the book and this is one of them.

This is a great chocolate cake with a little something extra from the cinnamon. I really enjoyed it. I used 1 stick of butter and baked it in a 13x9 inch baking pan for about 22 minutes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring to a boil the margarine, water, shortening and cocoa; set aside to cool.
  2. In another bowl, combine flour and sugar.
  3. When chocolate mixture has cooled, add the eggs, baking soda, cinnamon, buttermilk and vanilla.
  4. Bake in greased and floured pan in 350 degree oven until done.***I have no idea how long that might be.
