7 TBSP cocoa powder
1 1/2 c. +2 TBSP Flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. nuts (optional)
Powdered sugar
Beat the shortening and sugar until creamy and fluffy. Add eggs, spinach, cocoa and mix well. Slowly add the flour, baking powder, salt and nuts.
Pour into greased 13″x9″ pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 25-30 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting a knife into center–you want it to come out clean.
Eating them from the pan, we lightly dust with powdered sugar and serve!
