• 1/2 cup shortening
• 1/4 cup baking cocoa, unsweetened
• 1/2 cup buttermilk
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 2 eggs, lightly beaten
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

• 1/2 cup margarine at room temperature
• 1/4 cup baking cocoa, unsweetened

What To Do
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour a 13x9x2-inch baking pan.

2. Sift flour, sugar and salt into a large bowl and set aside.

3. In a small saucepan, combine 1/2 cup margarine, shortening, 1/4 cup cocoa, and 1 cup water; bring to a boil. Pour over the flour mixture.

4. Stir in buttermilk, baking soda, eggs, and vanilla. Beat with a hand-held mixer until smooth.
