Sunday Chocolate Cake



When I was growing up my mother made chocolate cake with divinity frosting every Sunday.
It was a tradition and one I loved.

Sunday Chocolate Cake

2 cups sugar
1 3/4 cup flour]
3/4 cup cocoa
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup oil
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup boiling water

Grease 13"x9" cake pan.  Combine dry ingredients in large bowl.  Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla.  Beat for 2 minutes.  Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin).  Pour batter into cake pan.  Bake 30-35 minutes or until tooth pick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool and frost cake.

Divinity Frosting

1 cup sugar
1/4 teas. salt
1/2 teas. cream of tartar
2 egg whites
3 tbsp. water
1 teas. vanilla

In the top of a double boiler combine the sugar, salt, cream of tartar, egg whites and water. Beat with an electric mixer until frosting starts to thicken and forms soft peaks. Remove from heat and add the vanilla until blended. Frost the chocolate cake.

In our family everyone would get a piece of cake and add their own frosting. We never frosted the cake.
