Hot Water Chocolate Cake

Hot Water Chocolate Cake

2 c white sugar

2/3 c oil

2 eggs

2 t vanilla                       Beat 4 minutes

2 2/3 c flour

2/3 c cocoa

2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp soda                       Blend, and add into the dry ingredients along with

2 c boiling water             Beat well

9x13 pan

325 o  until done

This is the cake I usually make when the occasion calls for chocolate.  On the farm I would occasionally make up a package of lemon pie filling, and pour it hot into the bottom of the pan, and pour the batter over it.  It would bake into a tangy sauce  that would save having to pack along cream or some other such item to make it “go down more easily” when serving meals out in the field.
