This recipe is in my mother’s handwriting, so apparently her blessing is upon it. I’ve never used it, but it reads well. Maybe you should try it.

Sift into bowl..2 cups flour, 1 tsp. soda, 2 cups sugar.

Melt 2 sticks oleo, add 4 Tblsp cocoa & 1 cup water. Bring to rapid boil. Pour over dry ingredients.

Add 1 cup buttermilk, 2 eggs, 1 tsp. vanilla. Mix well.

Bake in jelly roll pan @ 350 deg…15 or 20 minutes until done. (Cake will be moist.)

ICING

That’s about it!

The future is right ahead of me. At the age of 84, all new projects are interesting.Memories and friends of the past are with me every day. I love to share my thoughts along with comments and opinions (of course) of this day and today's times and challenges. Photography is my hobby. Although I haven't done many photos of people, I've found there are photo challenges in every direction. Born and raised in Michigan, the peaceful woods and wildlife have always attracted me. Graduating from high school in 1953, college was of no interest to me. My Dad used to say, "some folks get a college education and may still not have enough sense to come in out of the rain." That's always been enough for me because I do, have that much sense, about the rain. I have learned one important fact about life. Old isn't as old as I always thought it was.
