Welsley Fudge Cake

I found this recipe in a little dessert book from the 1950s- when women were doing nothing but making cakes. Yes, Welsley as in the school. This cake will make you sing- and do household chores cheerfully...or assume whatever gender role is appropriate.

3 8” x 1 ¼” layer cake pans
Line pans with wax paper
½ c butter
Add and cream ‘til fluffy
1 ½ c sugar
Add and beat thoroughly
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
Sift together separately
12 T cocoa
2 c minus 4 T flour
2 t baking powder
½ t milk
Add alternately in thirds, flour mixture and
1 ½ c milk
Beat well after each addition and fold in
1 c nuts, finely chopped
When baked, remove from oven, let stand 5 min
Turn out onto cooling rack, peel off paper, turn top side up, let cool
