My mom decorated cakes for years, and this is one of her best recipes. This cake is quite moist, and it doesn't "crumb," so it is great for frosting/decorating. We always choose this cake to celebrate birthdays in my family.
Beat sugar and oleo until well mixed--looks like grainy, lighter colored butter.
Add beaten eggs and melted chocolate; mix well.
Add cold water and vanilla. Mix gently. Add remaining cold water alternately with flour mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees in a greased 9x13 pan or two round pans for a layer cake.
Cake is done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
