  • 1 ½ cups buttermilk

Dissolve baking soda in buttermilk. Add beaten eggs, vanilla and shortening.

Mix flour, sugar and cocoa together in a bowl. Add to wet ingredients an beat well. Either 3 minutes on high speed with a mixer or 500 strokes without. Pour cake batter into pans and bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes until a cake tester or wooden toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool.

Hint: If you do not have buttermilk on hand, you can use ¼ cup vinegar mixed with 1 ¼ cup milk and it will work just as well.
