Homemade Chocolate Cake

Recipe Description
The batter tastes unbelievably like the Betty Crocker mix (yes, I always taste test my batter :D ). It doesn't stick to the pan, doesn't crumble and is the moistest cake I've tasted in a long time. It also doesn't leave me with wanting a gallon of milk to wash it down afterwards.​
Preparation Steps:
Boil water.

Measure ingredients.

Grease and flour a 9 x 13 inch pan.

Preheat oven.​
Level of Difficulty:
Time Needed:
35-40 mins baking time; 15 minutes mixing time​
2 c. sugar
1/2 rounded c. Crisco
1 level tsp. salt
1/2 c. cocoa
1/2 c. milk
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 tbsp. vinegar
2 rounded c. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 c. boiling water​
About as much as a 9 x 13 inch cake will feed​
Mix by hand. Mix cocoa and sugar. Add Crisco and mix. Add salt and mix. Add vinegar to milk then mix with previously mixed ingredients. Add eggs and mix. Add flour and mix. Batter will be stiff and moist but not wet. Sprinkle baking soda over mixture then add boiling hot water; mix carefully until well blended. Pour into greased and floured 9 x 13 inch pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Do not over bake. When cooled frost with favorite frosting, best with homemade frosting.​
