Best Ever Devil's Food Cake

This recipe for devil's food cake came out of a Pillsbury cookbook that had 100 prize winning recipes in it. I adapted the recipe slightly (adding 1/4 cup more cocoa and 1/2 teaspoon more vanilla) than originally called for. The hubby, Lauren and Dominic all had seconds of this cake after dinner this past Saturday night. When I told Lauren the original recipe for this cake won a prize in a recipe and baking contest, she said, "I can see why!" I can't wait to try the remaining 99 recipes!!!!


3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 3/4 cups white flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup warm water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13 x 9 x 2 inch pan with non-stick spray and set aside. In large bowl, put milk, vinegar, flour, salt, shortening, and sugar. Mix for one minute with electric mixer or by hand until smooth. Add eggs, vanilla, baking soda, cocoa and warm water and mix for an additional minute with mixer or by hand until well combined. Pour into pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean. Let cool and frost with your favorite icing - add sprinkles if desired!
