Diane Hopson's StoryMy sister in law Barbara is the baker in our family. I don't think there's anything she can't bake. This is her recipe and it's one of the best and most requested recipe!!
When ever Barbara brings this cake to an outing, you can be sure it’s the first thing on the dessert table to disappear.
People will get a slice of this cake before they fix there lunch/dinner plate just to make sure they get a piece.
Those that don’t know about this little trick are lucky to get a crumb when they go searching out the dessert table.
2 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1 1/3 c
1 1/2 c
1DIRECTIONS FOR CAKE: Combine flour, sugar and baking soda. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
2Spray 9-inch cake pans with non-vegetable spray (PAM). Spread 1/2 cup batter in pan and bake at 325 degrees about 10 minutes. Use a spatula to loosen layers when you remove from oven. DO NOT COOL IN PANS.
Repeat this step until you have baked all 10 layers.
3DIRECTIONS FOR FROSTING: Combine sugar and cocoa. Add milk and margarine and let come to a boil. Boil about 5 minutes (soft-ball stage when dropped in water). Frost cake while frosting is hot. Use about 5 soup spoons of frosting for each layer. Frost sides of cake before frosting top.
