Just imagine, a Chocolate Cake so rich and moist… you’ll want to eat it all yourself and not share it with anyone.   Folks ask for this 40 year old family recipe more than any other cake recipe I have in my collection.   The truth of the matter is… besides being the best chocolate cake ever… it’s a hit with the cook,  because it’s so easy to make.  If you’re like me… time is short and I need recipes that are quick and easy.

By the time you finish reading this recipe,  you’ll agree this is one of  the easiest  chocolate cake recipes ever.

The ingredients for this ultimate chocolate cake are:  2 1/2 C. sifted Flour…. 2 tsp Soda… 1 tsp Salt … 1/2 C. Cocoa…  1 3/4 C. Sugar… 2/3 C. Shortening…  2 Eggs…  1 tes. vanilla… 1 C. Buttermilk…   1 C. boiling Water.   The reason this recipe is so easy… is that you dump all of the ingredients into one bowl.  You might call this a Chocolate Dump Cake.   Tip: Some stores are carrying 1/2  pint cartons of Buttermilk… just perfect for this recipe.   Just to be on the safe side… keep a can of powdered buttermilk on hand.  When you get a hankering for a good piece of moist, rich chocolate cake… you’ll be prepared.

Mix well.  The sugar granules will help to break up the cocoa nicely.

Take a minute out now… and place a couple of cups of water into your microwave.  Bring the water to a boil.

When the batter begins to get a bit stiff… add 1 C. of boiling water.  Finish blending.  I don’t over blend this cake.  Just mix until all the ingredients are mixed well.

Pour the batter into  a greased and floured 9 x 13 dripper pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.
