Helen was an old friend of my grandmother. I don't know anything else about her. This recipe, however, looks as if it'd been cut out of the newspaper or a magazine - perhaps it refers to another Helen?
For the Cake
Preheat oven to 350F. Line two 9" layer pans with parchment or wax paper.
Make the cake. Cream together the butter with the sugar. In a separate bowl sift together the flour, salt and baking powder. Add to the butter mixture, alternating with the water. Pour into the prepared cake pans and bake for 35-40 minutes.
Make the frosting. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Add the condensed milk, salt and vanilla extract. Cook until
thickened, stirring constantly.
