Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a saucepan combine 1/2 cup margarine, shortening, 1/4 cup cocoa and water. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Pour the liquid mixture over the flour, sugar mixture; stir well. Blend in eggs and buttermilk.
  3. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cake cool 10 minutes, then frost while still warm.
  4. To make the Frosting: In a saucepan combine 1/2 cup margarine, milk and 1/4 cup cocoa. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Mix in confectioners' sugar. Pour over warm cake
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This recipe has been around in our family for about 80 years and is certainly a family favorite--especially mine! It's very moist and chocolatey! A couple of things to consider: 1) it's a great cake even without the salt, shortening, and cinnamon; 2) for an extra special treat-add Nestle's chocolate chips to the batter...they work their way to the bottom and are a great chocolatey treat when you eat; 3) the frosting is great with pecans or walnuts and is much easier to work with if you put it on while both the frosting and the cake are still warm. You'll love this recipe...it's really delicious!

7.14.10 This is the second best MEDIUM chocolate cake. It's a close second to Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake. This has a thin batter so doesn't round too much.

Very moist cake! I added some chocolate chips to make it more "chocolatety".
