Chocolate cake is one of my favorite desserts, personally I could eat it for breakfast. Here is one of the easiest make ahead mix recipes to keep on hand for an easy throw-together dessert. In addition to cake, this mix also makes excellent Cookies as well.
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup nonfat dry milk
3 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon shortening
1/4 cup cocoa powder
Preheat oven to 350F.
Grease and flour a 9x13 inch cake pan
1 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Jar Mix
Combine all in a bowl, mixing well, pour into 9x13 greased pan.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool & Frost as desired.
