Chocolate Cake Mix

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 15
Categories: Cakes / Chocolate / Desserts / Mix Recipes

6  cups  Flour, sifted
5 1/2  cups  Sugar
1  teaspoon  Baking powder
5 1/2  teaspoons  Baking soda
2  cups  Unsweetened cocoa
2  cups  Vegetable shortening

Sift dry ingredients together. Cut in shortening wiht a pastry blender or two knives, or you can use your food processor for this step. Store mix in a tightly closed container on the pantry shelf. Mix will keep for up to 6 months in dry weather. If the weather is hot and humid, keep this mix in the refrigerator. Note: This mix can be kept handy on the pantry shelf and is very convenient for a quick but rich treat. The basic chocolate cake from your own mix can be varied by the addition of different kinds of icings and fillings. Try spreading 1 cup of fruit preserves between the layers before frosting, and sprinkle the top with shredded coconut. SOURCE: Cheaper & Better, by Nancy Birner Typed for you by Nancy Coleman.
