1 egg
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup cocoa
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sour milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp soda
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup hot water

Put in mixing bowl in order given.  Do not mix until last item has been added.  Then beat well and pour into greased cake tin or cupcake tin.  Bake in a moderate over (350 degrees) for about 30 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched.

This cake recipe has been passed from generation to generation in our family.
Be With God,


1 c. thanks to God
1 c. good thoughts
3 c. of forgiveness
1 c. of kind deeds
2 c. sacrifice for others
3 c. of compassion

Mix thoroughly.  Add tears of joy, sorrow and sympathy for others.  Flavor with little gifts of love and kindly serve.  Fold in 4 cups of prayer and faith to lighten other ingredients, and raise to texture of great heights of Christian living.  Bake well at a high degree of human kindess, and serve with a warm smile.

The church used for pictures during Holy Week was chosen because of the cross in the front and the age of the church.  It was built over 200 years ago and was moved over 100 years ago from it's previous location to this one.  If you look at the beams in the attic you can still see that each one was numbered so it could be taken apart at it's old location and put together at the present one.  I am in no way, trying to favor or force any religion on anyone. Just thought the cross and age of the church fit well with Holy Week.

What a neat recipe for Christian Cake.
This church in the picture has a very neat history.

Good Morning Vickie,
Jean tried to have a recipe for these that requested something. I am a chocoholic too. You said you liked chocolate so she gave this recipe. Glad you like the Christian Cake. Yes, the church has a very neat history. Thank you for stopping.

Pour milk for recipe into a container and let it get to room temperature. Add 1 tbsp vinegar OR lemon juice for every 1 cup of milk. Stir in the vinegar (or lemon juice). The milk will curdle in a few minutes.
