Food Friday: Chocolate Thud Cake
This is our Go To recipe for birthdays or any other reason we have to bake a cake. At the Green House it is preferred straight from the 9 X 13 pan with this frosting. It's a scratch cake and it's heavy. You probably guessed that from the name.
Chocolate Thud Cake
2 eggs, beaten
2 C sugar
1/2 C shortening
1/2 C cocoa
2 C flour
2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla
1 C boiling water
1/2 C sour milk*
*To make sour milk, put 2 Tbs vinegar or lemon juice in milk. Let stand 5 minutes.
Put all ingredients, except boiling water, in a large bowl. Mix until barely moistened. Add boiling water and mix until smooth. Pour into 9x13 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes.
