Chocolate Coconut Cake

I’ve been making this every year for our summer party for nearly thirty years…

  • 2 c sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c milk
  • 1 c unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 c shortening, softened
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 c flour
  • 1 c shredded coconut
  • 1 c boiling water

Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl.

Line a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with foil, and butter it lightly.

Measure everything else into a large bowl in order and mix well. When you get to the dry ingredients in the list, mix them in slowly, stirring constantly. Once that’s all mixed, add the coconut, then mix in the boiling water.

Pour in baking pan, cook at 325 or til done. Cool 1 hour before frosting with Creamed Cheese Frosting.
