Yield
1 servings
MeasureIngredient
2 cups Sugar; scant
6 tablespoons Cocoa powder
½ cup Shortening
Eggs; or 3
⅔ cup Sour milk
2 cups Flour; unsifted
2 teaspoons Baking soda
1 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Boiling water; added last

To sour the milk, put 2 tsp. white vinegar in a one cup measure, fill with milk to the ⅔ mark, and let stand 15 minutes. Sift the sugar together with the cocoa into a large mixing bowl. Add shortening and cream. Add the eggs and mix well. Sift the flour with the soda & salt. Starting with the dry, alternate with the sour milk in adding to the batter, mixing thoroughly after each addition. Stir in the water, and then beat for a couple minutes. Batter will be thin. Bake in a greased & floured 9x13" pan in a preheated 350 degree oven until the top is firm when pressed with finger - about 35 minutes, more or less.

Cool the cake completely before frosting with Quick Fudge Frosting.

NOTES : It's called "Large" because my grandma had a small recipe as well, although not all the measurements were exactly half! Recipe by: Laura Nelson
