The Wandering Coyote has started up a new series at her site ReTorte. She plans to cook and bake her way through a 1969 copy of Betty Crocker's Cookbook.
For the first offering I saw she made this moist cake which you may see at her place HERE. After seeing it, I was inspired to make it too.......so last evening I got busy in the kitchen and am so glad I did.
Here is the recipe which was posted at her place:
Dinette Cake from Betty Crocker's Cookbook
1 ½ cups cake flour or 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup milk
⅓ cup shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla
Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour square pan, 8x8x2 or 9x9x2 inches. Measure all ingredients into large mixer bowl. Blend ½ minute on low speed, scraping bowl constantly. Beat 3 minutes high speed, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.
Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool.
I didn't have the frosting ingredients at the ready so I used chocolate chips. Melted them down a bit and smashed them about with milk to make a sauce.
Definitely a success! Can't wait to see what else is being cooked up over at ReTorte's Kitchen.
How I love chocolate...how about you?
