The girls baked Thunder Cake and Chango Bars. Check Sabi's blog out HERE for story details. Both recipes turned out to be quite delicious. I will leave them below for you to enjoy.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together one at a time:
1 cup shortening 1 3/4 cup sugar

1 cup cold water 1/3 cup pureed tomatoes
2 1/2 cups cake flour 1/2 cup dry cocoa
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon salt
Mix dry mixture into creamy mixture.
Bake in two greased and floured 8 1/2 round pans at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes. Frost with chocolate butter frosting. Top with strawberries.
1/2 cup butter 1/2 cup margarine
2 cups brown sugar 3 eggs
2 1/3 cups flour 1 tablespoon baking powder
