2 TSP Baking Soda
2 TSP Baking Powder
2 Cups Flour
Beat the shortening until fluffy. Add the sugars & one teaspoon of vanilla. Beat in the eggs.In a deep bowl stir the hot water OR hot coffee together with the cocoa & baking soda it will foam up! Set aside. Stir the flour together with the baking powder. Beat this into the egg & sugar mixture. Beat in the hot water/coffee into your batter & stir well. Batter will be thin! Pour into a greased & floured 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 38 to 40 minutes. Let cake cool. Once cool top with the following.
1&1/4 Cup Milk
6 TBS Flour

1 TSP Vanilla
Cook milk with the flour until thick!


 Chill. Once cool beat the butter & Crisco together add the sugar vanilla & salt. Beat well then beat in the cool thickened milk mixture. Beat until light & fluffy. Spread onto cooled cake & refrigerate. Make the following frosting!
1/2 Cup Butter
4OZ. Bakers Chocolate melted
1 Egg

3 Cups Powdered Sugar
Dash of Salt
2 & 1/2 TBS Hot Water
Beat butter & chocolate together. Add vanilla, salt, egg & sugar Beat well! Add enough hot water to the spreading consistency you desire! Spread over cooled filling.
