Texas Cake

Texas Cake

Just enough cake to hold the frosting together! Moist and VERY good. Serves 24 people

1/2 cup oleo softened
4 tbls cocoa
1 cup water
Place the above in a small pan
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
sift the above dry ingredients together in a medium size bowl.
1 tsp. vinegar with milk added to make 1/2 cup
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
Beat the last 3 ingredients together. Beat well.

Bring the oleo, cocoa and water to a boil and immediately pour over the dry

ingredients and mix. Add the rest and mix until smooth. Pour in a greased jelly roll pan and bake 350 for 25-30 min. Frost with the following;
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup white corn syrup
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup oleo
2 squares unsweetened chocolate
dash salt
Stir over low heat till chocolate is melted. Bring to a full boil, stirring constantly to 220 degrees on candy thermometer. Take from heat and beat on slow speed on mixer untill luke warm. ADD 1 tsp. vanilla. continue mixing until frosting looses its shine and is of spreading consistancy. Don't stop mixing too soon or the frosting will run off cake. Very good and well worth the work.
