    List of Ingredients

    1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
    1/2 cup boiling water
    2 cups sifted cake flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    1/3 cup vegetable shortening
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 large eggs
    1 cup buttermilk
    vegetable cooking spray
    1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
    3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
    2 tablespoons skim milk
    1 teaspoon butter -- softened
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


    Preheat oven to 350F.

    To prepare cake, combine 1/2 cup cocoa and water in a small bowl; cool.
    Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine
    flour, baking soda, and salt, stirring well with a whisk. Place sugar,
    shortening, and 2 teaspoons vanilla in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at
    medium speed until well blended. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well
    after each addition. Beat in cocoa mixture. Add flour mixture and
    buttermilk alternately to sugar mixture, beginning and ending with flour
    mixture and beating well after each addition.

    Pour batter into a 9x13" baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake for
    30 minutes or until the cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool in
    pan 10 minutes on a wire rack.

    To prepare icing, combine the powdered sugar and 3 tablespoons cocoa in a
    medium bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Add milk, butter, and 1/2
    teaspoon vanilla; stir with a whisk until smooth. Spread icing over cake.
