Granny's Kitchen

When my kids were little this way their favorite cake.  I one point in my life I could make it from memory I had made it so many times.  The babies will be 30 in 20 more days and I have to admit that I can’t make it from memory any longer.

Since it’s made in a jelly roll pan it makes a fairly large cake.  It’s thin and almost brownie like but not as heavy or dense.  Once the icing is set, it almost tastes like chocolate fudge…yum yum!

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 cup water
4 tablespoons cocoa
1 stick oleo (do not use tub spread as it contains too much water)
1/2 cup shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Grease and flour jelly roll pan  (approx. 17″ X 13″) thoroughly.
