Never Fail Chocolate Cake
This recipe was given to me by my good friend Tammy Fenberg. i have tweaked it just a bit to make it even more foolproof. it is fast and easy, especially if you don't have a box mix.
1C. buttermilk/sour milk (add 1 tsp. vinegar to 1 C. milk; let sit five min.)
1 C. oil
2 beaten eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
Combine above ingredients; mix well
3 C. flour
3 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 C. sugar
1/4 C. special dark cocoa (if you can find it; regular works, too, but is not as fabulous)
1 box chocolate jello pudding mix
Sift above ingredients into a large bowl.
Add wet combination; mix on medium speed.
Add 1C. hot water slowly while mixing.
Bake @ 350˚ for 35 minutes
Fudgy Chocolate Frosting
