Quite a few years ago, I purchased a City of Kenosha Fire Department fund-raiser cookbook from a co-worker. When I saw this recipe, I knew I had to make it! I have made this cake many times! It's sooo delicious!
1 pkg. Devil's Food chocolate cake mix
3/4 cup sugar
1 stick butter
2/3 cup Crisco
2 tsp vanilla
dash of salt
1 small can (5 oz) evaporated milk (not sweetened condensed milk)
1 can chocolate fudge frosting
Bake the cake in a 9 x 13 pan according to the directions on the box. Let cool completely.
Combine the next five ingredients and mix until creamy. Add the evaporated milk and mix very slowly at first. Beat for 3 to 4 minutes. It will seem like a lot of liquid but it pulls together very quickly.
Spread the cream topping on top of the cooled cake. Refrigerate. Make sure the topping is firm before frosting it.
Place the entire can of frosting (cover and foil removed) in the microwave for 45-55 seconds. Stir. Slowly, pour the melted frosting evenly on top of cake. Refrigerate cake overnight.
