Old-Fashioned Cake

"I got the recipe out of a cookbook a long time ago. I can’t eat chocolate myself, but I make it and take it to church. Everybody likes it. It’s quick to make and you can’t go wrong with the icing." - Mary Hardeman, Winder

Ingredients for cake batter: 

2 cups self-rising flour

1 cup buttermilk

1 cup Crisco oil

3 eggs

1½ cups sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

Ingredients for icing:

2 cups sugar

½ cup cocoa

½ cup milk

1 stick margarine

1 tsp. vanilla


Mix cake batter ingredients with mixer. Pour in greased 9x13-inch baking dish. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. 

For icing, mix ingredients in sauce pan and bring to a boil for 3 minutes. When cake is done, cut into squares while still in pan and still hot. Pour icing over cake.
