    This Black Magic Chocolate Cake &
Is Made by Do uble Boiler Method
HERE'S the most beautiful choco
late cake, a real dream of a
cake. It’s easy to make and deli
cious, with a fine, tender grain
assured by the use of cake flour.
It is economical, too. What more
could anybody want?
Do you ever make notes on your
recipes? Note number one for this
Black Magic Chocolate Cake should
be this: Notice that the recipe says
melted chocolate and shortening
should be cool before sugar is add
ed: that means really cool. Choco
late and shortening are melted in
a bowl over hot* water to begin
with; and the cake is mixed in the
Bame bowl.
Second, the recipe say3 add 1
cup milk, then it says add 2 cups
cake flour. Add all the milk at
once if you want to, but add the
delicate cake flour about a third
at a time, as you usually do.
The third thing to note is this:
you will find that this cake, right
out of the cake tin. fresh as a daisy,
is light as down. This means that
the frosting used should be a deli
cate light one. But after the first
day, don't think this cake isn’t still
perfection. A little time to ripen
and mellow and it’s moist and rich,
quite the best chocolate cake you've
lever baked.
You won’t have any frosting wor
ries if you use a new instant frost
ing that needs to be mixed only
with hot tap water. One 4-1/2 ounce
package makes enough for top and
sides of a layer.

DOES SAFETY PAY? True—it costs money
to put telephone employees through First Aid,
such as the “how to apply a splint” course
shown above. It costs money to train our
people in safe wprking practices. It costs
money to keep tools and equipment in proper
working order—hazard free. But the time and
money we gladly spend for safety are returned
in many ways—in reduced chance of personal
suffering and disability ... in the healthier
