Ingredients

1 1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup cocoa
2 eggs
1 cup very hot water
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup sour milk


Preheat oven to 350.


Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.


Mix well and pour into a greased cake pan and bake for 30 minutes or until the center springs back when lightly pressed.


I have also added 2 tbsp cinnamon just for something different.


sprinkle with powder sugar or frost with your favorite frosting. The best I have had is just fresh strawberries and raspberries mixed and poured over each piece.


Enjoy

Notes

My mother taught me how to make this when I was a little girl. It is probably the easiest cake to make.
