There's nothing like a nice, rich piece of chocolaty cake after a long day at school. When your kids come runnin' home you can keep 'em quiet with our After-School Chocolate Cake. That is, until the sugar kicks in!

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate syrup
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 (16-ounce) can vanilla frosting

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a Bundt pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, cream sugar and shortening with an electric mixer on low speed. Gradually beat in the eggs, one at a time. Slowly mix in the chocolate syrup, flour, and baking powder.
  3. Pour into prepared Bundt pan and bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
