  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 13 cake pan.
  • Cream the sugar and shortening until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and beat until well mixed.
  • Add the cocoa, milk, baking soda, and flour; mix well.
  • Add the boiling water; beat just until well mixed. The batter will be thin.
  • Pour into the prepared cake pan and bake in preheated oven for 35 - 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when poked in the center of the cake.
  • Allow cake to cool completely before frosting.
  • Combine the sugar, cocoa, and salt in a saucepan; add the eggs and stir well.
  • Add the milk and vanilla; bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Don't use too high of heat and watch carefully because it scorches easily. Boil for 1 minute after it comes to a rolling boil.
  • Remove from the heat and beat until cool; spread on the cooled cake.

"The cake was very good. But the frosting was too strong for me. I took it off every slice I cut for myself. I haven't decided what to do for that the next time I make it. Also I didn't get it to "fudge", but that was most likely my fault."

"This was a yummy homemade chocolate cake. It was like eating a moist, fluffy fudge brownie. Many times when I make a cake from scratch it turns out dry and has a coarse texture but not this one. If you like chocolate cake you just have to try this recipe."
