  • 2 cups flour, sifted
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup powdered cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. baking powder

Mix together all of the above ingredients in a large bowl. In a separate large bowl, measure together:

  • 3/4 Crisco or Vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Then gradually add flour mixture to wet mixture and stir until well-mixed. Then stir in...

1 cup hot (prepared) coffee

For cupcakes, fill 2/3 full and bake at 350 degrees for 20 min. Check with toothpick, if dry when inserted in middle, they're done, If not, bake a few minutes longer.

For cake, bake in 13 by 9" pan or 2 round pans for layer cake at 350 degrees for 35-40 min.


4 tbsp. flour and 1 cup milk. Cook and stir until thick and creamy. Set aside and cool completely. Mix together with blender 1/2 cup crisco shortening and 1/2 cup margarine, softened. Add 1 cup sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla and mix well. Mix together cool flour mixture with sugar mixture and beat on high- the longer, the creamier and fluffier!
