   1.)  Mix cocoa and brown sugar in saucepan; add hot water,

   minutes, or until slightly thickened, stirring constantly;
   2.)  Sift flour once, then measure and mix with baking
   powder, soda, and salt; sift twice.
   3.)  Cream shortening until softened; add sugar gradually,
   beating thoroughly after each addition.
   4.)  Beat in vanilla, then eggs, one at a time, beating
   until fluffy after each. Add cooled cocoa mixture; stir
   until blended. Add flour mixture alternately with milk,
   beating until smooth, after each addition.
   5.)  Turn into 2 greased (9-inch) layer pans. Bake in
   moderate oven (350') about 25 minutes.

   Frosting between layers and on top and sides of cake.
   Sprinkle chopped nuts on sides, if desired. Source:
