I had been on the hunt for a vintage chocolate cake recipe. A simple recipe. And I came across this one and it is a keeper.
If you are wondering about Fluffo... it was a shortening with a buttery flavor. I can recall seeing this product at one time. But Crisco pretty much has the market corner in Texas, with what can be found easily on the shelf to buy.
I did use butter flavored Crisco when I made this cake... and it turned out perfect.
But what Fluffo's real claim to fame... was it made a pretty pie crust.
Sadly, I still lack the ability to make a quality pie crust from scratch. I am still buying them already in the pan, by Marie Callender from Krogers. :)
But dang... that Fluffo makes a pretty crust!
