"Ho Ho" Cake
Ho Ho" Cake
5 tablespoons flour
1 1/4 cups milk
1 cup sugar
2 sticks margarine
1/2 cup Crisco
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 ounces pre-melted chocolate or 3 one-inch squares unsweetened chocolate
2 teaspoons hot water
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1. Make a regular chocolate cake in a 9 x 13 pan.
2. First topping: Heat flour and milk in a saucepan. Mix and heat mixture, stirring constantly until thick. Let cool. In a bowl, cream sugar, one stick margarine and Crisco. Mix with cooled flour mixture. Beat well for about eight minutes. (Looks like whipped cream when ready.) Spread on the cake and refrigerate.
3. Second topping: Melt the remaining stick of margarine and let cool. Beat egg, vanilla and chocolate. Mix with cooled margarine. Add hot water and powdered sugar. Mix well. Spread over the cream topping and refrigerate.
NOTE: This won't look like the "Ho Ho" cake you remember.
