The sour milk makes this cake very moist.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the milk and the lemon juice or vinegar. Set aside.
  • Cream together the butter or margarine and the sugar. Separate the eggs, keeping two of the whites and all of the yolks. Beat the egg yolks.
  • Dissolve the cocoa in the hot water.
  • Add the soured milk mixture, the yolks, the cocoa, and the vanilla to the creamed mixture. Add the flour and soda. Beat at a low speed for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Beat 2 of the egg whites to stiff peaks. Fold the beaten egg whites into the batter and pour into a greased loaf pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 to 60 minutes.
