Directions

  1. Grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl beat shortening with an electric mixer on medium speed about 30 seconds or until softened. Add 1 cup sugar and vanilla; beat until combined. Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each. Alternately add flour mixture and water, beating on low to medium speed after each addition just until combined. Thoroughly wash beaters.
  3. In a large mixing bowl beat egg whites on medium to high speed until soft peaks form (tips curl). Gradually add 3/4 cup sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, beating until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Fold 2 cups of the cocoa batter into the egg white mixture to lighten. Gently fold cocoa-egg white mixture back into remaining batter until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 40 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Frost with Fudge Frosting. Makes 12 servings.
