Shortening and cocoa powder are a substitution for unsweetened
chocolate squares- Here's the recipe I use(Joy of Cooking)
5 oz unsweetened chocolate(sub 15TBLS cocoa and 5 TBLS shortening)
1 cube (4 oz) unsalted butter
Melt these together and add
2 cups sugar
Mix well- add
4 eggs & 2 tsp vanilla
Mix well- add
1 cup all purpose flour- Stir until blended.Put into a 9x13 greased or
