Best Fudge Cake Recipe
3-1 oz. squares unsweetened chocolate
2/3 cup sugar
½ cup milk
1 large egg, beaten
½ cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
2 cups sifted cake flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
2/3 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two, 9 round cake pans.
Combine chocolate, 2/3 cup sugar, ½ cup milk and beaten egg in a
saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat until the chocolate melts
and the mixture thickens; cool.
Cream the shortening and 1 cup
sugar together until fluffy and light. Add vanilla to the creamed
mixture. Add 2 eggs, 1 at a time, to the creamed mixture, beating
well after each egg. Sift together the flour, baking soda and
salt. Add to the creamed mixture alternately with 2/3 cup milk,
beginning and ending with the flour mixture; beat after each
addition. Blend in the chocolate mixture.
Put into prepared pans
and bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees or until a cake tester comes
out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes then turn out onto cake
racks to finish cooling. Cool completely before frosting.
