Vintage Bake King DevilsFood Cake Recipe

A few weeks ago I lugged over a box of recipes from my great aunties house. All of the recipes in this box are vintage ones that she cut out of magazines, booklets and newspapers many years ago. They are all yellowed, tattered and faded.

This vintage recipe that great auntie saved seems to be an advertisement one from a Bake King Pan label of some sort. Btw...price of the pan back in the old days was .39 cents! geesh, we pay way too much today! LOL

Bake King Devilsfood Cake Recipe

2 1/4 c. sifted cake flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2/3 cup soft shortening
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 large eggs
3 squares (ounces) baking chocolate, melted
1 1/4 cups buttermilk

Sift together flour, baking soda & salt. Cream shortening, sugar & vanilla extract until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time & beat thoroughly. Blend in chocolate. Add dry ingredients alternately with buttermilk, blending well after each addition.

Bake in two greased 8" Bake King square cake pans in a 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes or until done. Cool thoroughly and then frost with your favorite frosting.
