Make this Old Fashioned Southern Chocolate Cake recipe, and you'll be transported to a breezy southern porch!
What You'll Need:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup sugar
cup vegetable shortening
cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Old-Fashioned Southern Chocolate Frosting (see Note)
What To Do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat two (9-inch) round cake pans with cooking spray: set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; mix well and set aside. In a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat sugar, shortening, and butter until fluffy. Beat in eggs until well mixed. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Add buttermilk and vanilla until well mixed. Divide batter evenly between prepared cake pans.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center of each comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes, then invert onto wire racks to cool completely.
Place 1 cake layer upside-down on a serving platter and frost top. Place second layer over first and frost top and sides. Serve, or cover loosely until ready to serve.
