Sorry, BettyR, I promised I'd post this several days ago, but time got away from me. Here's the chocolate cake recipe I told you about
KATIE’S BLACK DEVIL’S FOOD CAKE
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1¾ cup granulated sugar
½ cup cocoa
½ tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. baking soda
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup buttermilk or sour milk
1 cup boiling strong coffee
Grease and flour one 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan. Set aside.
Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl. Add egg, oil and milk and stir until well blended. Gently stir boiling coffee into mixture. This will make a very thin batter. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 50 minutes. Frost as desired or serve dusted with powdered sugar. Note:
To make sour milk, stir 1 tablespoon lemon juice into 1 cup milk. Let stand a few minutes to allow the milk to curdle.
