Deb's Story

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.

Ingredients

2 c
granulated sugar
1/2 c
oleo margarine, softened (do not melt)
2
eggs, beaten
2
unsweetened chocolate squares, melted (or 1/2 c. cocoa)
1 c
cold water
3 c
flour with 2 tsp. baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt mixed in
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 c
water (alternate with flour mixture)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Beat sugar and oleo until well mixed--looks like grainy, lighter colored butter.
2
Add beaten eggs and melted chocolate; mix well.
3
Add cold water and vanilla. Mix gently. Add remaining cold water alternately with flour mixture.
4
Bake at 350 degrees in a greased 9x13 pan or two round pans for a layer cake.
5
Cake is done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Thank you, All. Enjoy! Debby, I have another recipe that Mom used for decorating that I will post. It is called "Silver White Cake". Again, it is a moist cake and not too many crumbs! I hope they will work well for you.

Best wishes!
