Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is truly a pioneer recipe from Colorado. It has been entered in contests and won prizes. It makes both a chocolate cake and a white cake if you leave out the chocolate. You need no modern appliances. It can be made in a bowl with a fork or a spoon. It calls for buttermilk but you can put a couple of tablespoons of vinegar into the measuring cup and then continue to fill the cup with milk.

From Cosmo White's Grandma
