good

 
 

1 cup sugar
1 cup sour milk
1 2/3 cup flour not sifted
3 table spoon cocoa
1/4 cup crisco
1 leavel tea s. soda
vanilla

Aunt Pit often assumes that any idiot knows what to do with the cake ingredients. For those of us who don't:
Gather ingredients
Preheat oven to 350°.
Grease cake pan.
Mix wet ingredients in a bowl.
Mix dry ingredients in another bowl.
Combine wet and dry ingredients.
Pour batter into pan/pans.
Bake about 30 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the cake is dry.

 

Taste and health benefits of Butter, Shortening (Crisco/Spry), and Lard are still hotly debated. Aunt Pit wasn't afraid of any of them.
