Fudge Four O'Clocks


1 cup white flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons baking cocoa
2 tablespoons shortening
1/2 cup water
1 cup white sugar
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees and cover a jelly roll pan (11 inches x 17 inches) with aluminum foil. Spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside. In large bowl, put all the ingredients in the order given and mix well by hand with large spoon. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack. When completely cool, eat as is or top with your favorite frosting! I used Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy Milk Chocolate Frosting, because can you EVER have enough chocolate?!?!
