Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
4 squares unsweetened chocolate*
2 c. flour
3/4 tsp. salt
2 1/4 c. milk
2 egg yolks (unbeaten)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 c. shortening
2 c. granulated sugar
1 tsp. vanilla



Fluffy 5 Minute Frosting:
2 egg whites (unbeaten)

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Line 2 - 9" cake pans on bottom with wax paper; grease paper. Measure flour and salt and set aside. Melt shortening, and chocolate over hot water. Turn into mixing bowl. Cool to room temperature. (If using cocoa, mix with flour). Add sugar, mix well. Mix together egg yolks and 1 cup milk. Blend into chocolate mixture. Stir in flour, mix until all flour is dampened; beat 150 strokes with spoon or 1 minute with electric beaters at low to medium speed. Count only actual strokes or beating time. Add vanilla and 1/2 cup milk. Stir until smooth. Dissolve soda in remaining milk. Stir quickly and well into batter (batter will be thin). Turn at once into pans. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until done. Cool in pans on wire rack for 10-15 minutes, then remove paper.
Frosting: Place all ingredients except vanilla in top of double boiler, over hot water. With electric mixer, beat at low speed until ingredients are well mixed, then at high speed for 4-5 minutes or until mixture forms a peak when beaters are lifted. Remove pan from water and add vanilla. Spread on cake.
*Note: In place of the 4 squares of unsweetened chocolate, I use 12 Tbsp. plus 1/4 c. more of shortening.
