COCOA STICKS

Ingredients Cocoa Sticks :

1 tablespoonful of milk,
6 tablespoonfuls of butter,
¾ cup of sugar (scant),
1 egg,
1 teaspoonful of vanilla or pinch of cinnamon,
5 teaspoonfuls of Baker’s Cocoa,
1/8 teaspoonful of baking powder,
1 ¼ to 1 ½ cups of sifted pastry flour.

Step Cocoa Sticks :

Cream the butter until soft; add the sugar gradually and beat well; add the beaten egg, milk and vanilla; mix thoroughly. Sift cocoa, baking powder, and a pinch of salt with about one-half cup of the flour; stir this into the mixture first, then use the remainder of the flour, and more if necessary, to make a firm dough that will not stick to the fingers. Set on the ice to harden. Sprinkle the board with cocoa and a very little sugar. Use small pieces of the dough at a time, toss it over the board to prevent sticking, roll out thin, cut in strips about one-half inch wide and three inches long. Place closely in pan and bake in moderately hot oven three or four minutes. Great care should be taken in the baking to prevent burning.

It is advisable to gather the scraps after each rolling, if soft, and set away to harden, for fear of getting in too much cocoa, thus making them bitter.

The colder and harder the dough is, the better it can be handled; therefore it can be made the day before using.

Cocoa Frosting Sauce Cake Recipes

COCOA FROSTING

Ingredients Cocoa Frosting :

4 teaspoonfuls of Baker’s Cocoa,
2 tablespoonfuls of cold water,
3 tablespoonfuls of hot water,

Put the cocoa in a small saucepan; add the cold water and stir until perfectly smooth; then the hot water, and cook for one or two minutes, add vanilla and a speck of salt, then stir in enough sugar to make it stiff enough to spread nicely. Beat until smooth and glossy and free from lumps.

If too thick, add a little cold water. If not thick enough, add a little sugar. Never make a frosting so stiff that it will have to be made smooth with a wet knife. It is better to let it run to the sides of the cake. For frosting sides of the cake, make a little stiffer.

This frosting never cracks as an egg frosting, but is hard enough to cut nicely.
