Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan. In a small bowl, mix together the cocoa and hot water and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the sugar and shortening until smooth. Beat in the egg and stir in the vanilla. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the sour milk. Stir in the cocoa and water mixture. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.

Let me start by saying that I'm a very experienced cook of 30+ years. I was looking for a low fat chocolate cake & thought I'd try this one. In my opinion this recipe needs three major adjustments: 1. Double the amount of chocolate 2. Add the chocolate mixture just before blending the flour & sour milk; the recipe instructions give no indication of WHEN to add the chocolate. This could be disastrous to a novice cook. 3. Use a 9x9 pan (9x13 is way too big, as the cake will turn out very flat)

This cake was ok. The recipe did not call for nearly enough chocolate, so I had to keep adding chocolate, and then it ended up being too chocolaty. The cake itself was ok, it is a rather dense cake. If you try it I would double or triple (no more than that) depending on how dark you like your chocolate.

easy to make, just a little dry. I followed reviewers advise and added more cocoa. I upped the hot water to match the cocoa amount
