Waldorf Astoria Cake

½ C. shortening

2 eggs

¼ C. red food coloring

1 C. buttermilk

1 tsp. soda

1 ½ C. Sugar minus 2 Tbsp.

2 tsp. cocoa

2 ¼ C. sifted cake flour +2 Tbsp.

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. vinegar

Cream together shortening, sugar, and eggs. Add the cocoa, food coloring, and flour. Beat in the remaining ingredients. Bake in two round (9") cake pans at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes then remove from pan. Cool and split each layer. Frost and stack (frosting below)



1 C. milk

1 C. butter

1 tsp. vanilla

3 Tbsp. flour

1 C. sugar

Cook the milk and flour until very thick. Let cool (this step is important because if it isn't both thick and cooled your frosting will be glaze). Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla together. Slowly add the milk mixture and beat until light and fluffy.


The frosting is really what makes this cake come alive. I think I could eat the frosting by itself. I will try and refrain J

Enjoy! ~Sarah~
