Chauncey’s Chocolate Cake

                         P9160787 

This is a nice moist chocolate cake that I made for Chauncey’s birthday. I frosted it with whipped cream, but for the filling I added 1 double size Heath bar that I chopped up. Everyone loved his cake!

Chauncey’s Chocolate Cake

1 cup butter flavored shortening

1 3/4 cups sugar

3 eggs

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1 1/2 cups milk

2  1/2 cups flour (I added 2 tablespoon for high altitude)

6 tablespoons cocoa (I used extra dark)

1 1/2 teaspoons soda

1 teaspoon salt

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 8” pans with Pam . Whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake  for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
