My barn pal Pudge has kept me pretty busy for the past couple of weeks. I hope your summer is off to a great start with your Memorial Day celebrations! Mable, Cruella and I have been certainly very busy making our horse pals happy with lots of delicious treats. This week I’ll be sharing my Grandma’s Chocolate Layer Cake recipe. This is actually an old Crisco recipe from years ago that is still easy to make and enjoy today. I made this alst weekend for everyone in the pasture and it was a big success!
So you may want to look this over and give it a try!
Measure into mixing bowl- all measurements level.
1 1/4 cups of cake flour (sifted before measuring)
1 Cup Sugar
1/3 Cup Crisco
2 squares melted bitter chocolate
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soda
Stir vigorously by hand or with mixer (medium speed) 2 minutes. Now stir in 3/4 teaspoon baking powder. Now add 1/3 Cup Milk, 2 eggs (unbeaten), 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Blend by hand or in mixer (medium speed) for 2 minutes. The batter will be smooth ad thin.
