A Family Recipe

We’ve been back in the States these last two weeks visiting family and friends. I will update in the next few weeks on those adventures.

Since I’m home this week I have a special family recipe to share with everyone. We make this cake every July for my Uncle Dave’s birthday. It is a family favorite! We call this cake an “Aunt Opal” cake which is a sheet cake that is rich and fudgy. It needs to be stored in the fridge.


2 Cups Sugar

2 Cups Flour

1/3 Cup Oil

1/2 Cup Milk

1/2 Cocoa

2 Eggs

2 tsp. Baking Soda

1/2 Cup Boiling Water

Mix all of the above ingredients together. photo1

Pour into a greased rectangular pan.


Bake at 350 for 25-35 minutes.

Cool cake. Then, using a fork pork holes in the top of the cake across the whole thing.


Topping Ingredients:

1 Cup Sugar

1/4 Cup Cocoa

1/2 Cup Milk

1/4 Cup Butter

Dash of Salt

Pour the hot topping over the cake with holes poked in it. Put the cake in the fridge to cool.


Eat and enjoy!

(p.s. my favorite part of the cake is the center where all the extra fudge sauce rolls to!)
