Linda's Chocolate Cake

What can I say about Linda and this delicious chocolate cake she had become known for. She had served as choir director at our church until she had been diagnosed with lung cancer a few years ago. She had fought hard and always had a positive attitude. She had recently lost this battle and is going to be greatly missed. I hope I can have a positive spirit like she had whenever I am face with an impossible situation.

So back to this cake.

She had been know to be a good cook. She had baked many cakes in her lifetime for special occasions.  Everyone's favorite was this chocolate cake. Unfortunately I could not enjoy this cake to the fullest because I am allergic to chocolate.  I can tolerate low amounts of chocolate, but for me this is definitely a Death by Chocolate Cake (it would not actually kill me, but I was feeling miserable after I at this cake at the funeral) The cake was served at the funeral and the recipe printed out for everyone. So here it is:

Cake recipe:

3 cups of flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup packed cocoa
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 cups water
2 Tbs white vinegar
1 cup oil

Mix dry ingredients together. add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and beat with a mixer for two minutes. bake at 325 degrees for 35 minutes in 9x13 pan that is spray greased.

Fudge frosting:

1/3 cup sweetened condense milk
1 cup sugar
5 Tbs butter
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Bring the condensed milk, sugar, and butter to a boil in a heave sauce pan and boil for 1.5 minutes. Add the chocolate chips. Stir until chips are melted and frosting is smooth. Let cool slightly then frost the cake.
