 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Sugar; scant
  • 6 tb Cocoa powder
  • 1/2 c Shortening
  • 2 Eggs; or 3
  • 2/3 c Sour milk
  • 2 c Flour; unsifted
  • 2 ts Baking soda
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1 c Boiling water; added last


To sour the milk, put 2 tsp. white vinegar in a one cup measure, fill with
milk to the 2/3 mark, and let stand 15 minutes. Sift the sugar together
with the cocoa into a large mixing bowl. Add shortening and cream. Add the
eggs and mix well. Sift the flour with the soda & salt. Starting with the
dry, alternate with the sour milk in adding to the batter, mixing
thoroughly after each addition. Stir in the water, and then beat for a
couple minutes. Batter will be thin. Bake in a greased & floured 9x13" pan
in a preheated 350 degree oven until the top is firm when pressed with
finger - about 35 minutes, more or less.

Cool the cake completely before frosting with Quick Fudge Frosting.

NOTES : It's called "Large" because my grandma had a small recipe as well,
although not all the measurements were exactly half!
