American.Gourmet's picture
Ingredients
  Sifted cake flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Baking powder 2 Teaspoon
  Soda 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Cocoa 10 Tablespoon (1/2 Cup Plus 2 Tablespoons)
  Granulated sugar 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Shortening 10 Tablespoon (1/2 Cup Plus 2 Tablespoons)
  Warm water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Milk 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Eggs 2
  Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
Directions

1. Preheat oven to moderate (350° F.).
2. Sift together in the bowl of an electric mixer the flour, baking powder, soda, salt, cocoa and sugar. Add the shortening, water, milk, eggs and vanilla and blend on very low speed until the ingredients are moistened. Mix three minutes on medium (No. 3) speed, scraping the bowl frequently to insure complete blending. Do not include the scraping time in the three minutes.
3. Pour the mixture into two nine-inch layer cake pans that have been greased and lined with waxed paper circles cut one-eighth inch smaller than the bottoms of the pans.
4. Bake until the cake rebounds when pressed gently in the center, twenty-five to thirty minutes. Cool in the pans on a cake rack ten minutes before removing from the pans. Cool and frost as desired.
