  1. In a medium saucepan mix together sugar, salt, cornstarch, cocoa and hot water.
  2. Cook on medium heat stirring constantly until mixture becomes a little thicker than pudding.
  3. Add margarine and vanilla and stir until blended.
  4. Pour over hot cake, (do not cool frosting before using). Use a spatula to smooth the frosting out.
  5. Let the cake cool and then it’s best to keep it refrigerated as it is a very moist cake and will only keep for a couple of days if not refrigerated.
  6. Enjoy!

    2/3 cup vegetable oil can be substituted with 1/3 cup apple sauce = 1/3 cup vegetable oil if desired.
