2 c Flour

1 1/2 c Sugar

1/2 c Cocoa

2 ts Baking soda

1 c Sour milk

1/2 c Melted shortening

Or salad oil. = (i use canola oil) 1/2 c Boiling water

1 ts Vanilla

Put all ingredients (in order) in one bowl and beat. Bake in greased tube pan for about 55-60 minutes in a 350 degree oven. (some ovens may vary, so check the cake between 50 aand 60 minutes) I frost my cake with a confectionary white frosting with a hint of real coffee put in, and it is absolutely delicious! Hint: To make sour milk, add one teaspoon of vinegar to the cup of milk and let it stand for a couple of minutes. For the liquid shortening, I use Crisco canola oil; it is both healthy and tasty and makes the cake very moist. -----
