Tom's birthday is in a couple days, and we are celebrating this evening at the home of Margaret's boyfriend. I've had this recipe for eight years. It came from my friend Kay, so I call it:
Kay's Fudge Cake
Melt one cup of butter.
Add 1/4 cup cocoa and 6 Tablespoons water.
Pour over a mixture of 2 cups flour and 2 cups sugar.
Add 1/2 cup milk.
Add 2 lightly beaten eggs.
Add 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
Beat well for a few minutes until very smooth.
Bake in greased 9 x 13 pan in preheated 350º oven for 25 minutes.
5 minutes before the cake is done:
Melt 1/2 cup butter.
Add 1/4 cup cocoa, about 3 cups confectioners sugar, 6 Tablespoons milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Mix well and pour over cake right out of the oven.
This is a wonderful chocolate cake!
