This is another recipe from my 1955 Marshall Township PTA cookbook.  Do any of my fellow Hilltoppers know who Mrs. Ethyl Hulsander is/was?  I do not recognize that name but I was only 8-years-old in 1955.

1 pkg yeast
1/4 cup warm water
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup sifted cocoa
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp soda
2 1/2 - 3 cups sifted flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water.  Scald milk. Add butter, stirring until melted. Cool. Add egg and dissolved yeast.  Stir in cocoa, salt, sugar, and soda.  Beat in 2 cups flour.  Add remaining flour until a soft dough is formed.  Knead until smooth and shiny.  Let rise in a greased bowl until double in bulk.  Knead dough and shape into rolls.  Allow to rise again.  Bake in a hot oven 375 degrees for 15 minutes.
