Chocolate Fudge Cake

This recipe has been around for years, and was given to me by my special painting on location friend. We shared happy, laughing times, supposedly painting, but mostly enjoyed the lunches we packed, along with lovely scenery.
Our grand daughter loves this cake, and requests it often. If you want an easy, no big mess cake to make, this is it. No electric mixer needed, except for frosting

Cook:

Ingredients

1 stick
butter,unsalted
4 Tbsp
cocoa
1/2 c
crisco
1 c
water
2 c
all purpose flour
2 c
sugar
1/2 c
buttermilk
1 tsp
baking soda
2
eggs
1 tsp
cinnamon (optional)
1 tsp
vanilla
6 Tbsp
milk---- or cream (all of below is for icing
4 Tbsp
cocoa
1 stick
unsalted butter
1 box
confection sugar
1 tsp
vanilla
"just a pinch" of salt is good in cake

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350o---grease 13x9 baking dish.
In large sauce pan cook together the butter, cocoa,Cricso, and water. Bring to a just to a boil. Remove from heat, and stir in flour and sugar (mixed together). Beat well by hand.
2
MIX together: buttermilk, soda, eggs, cinnamon (optional), and vanilla. I usually let this cool a few minutes before adding the wet ingredients. Mix well.
Bake @ 350o for 40 minutes

While cake bakes, make frosting in the same pan (the friend always says she's lazy here, one pan to wash!). Bring to a boil: milk, cocoa, and butter. Remove from heat and add the powdered sugar, vanilla, and beat well (here I use my hand electric mixer). Be careful not to beat too long, it almost makes fudge (guess how I know this?) It's good to frost cake while it is still warm from the oven. You can use evaporated milk in frosting, which makes it similar to the old fashioned fudge candy. You can also add pecans or walnuts to frosting.
