The other day, I made this cake to take to work.
(from BD Family Cookbook/ Irene Storms)
2 sticks of butter
1 cup water
4 T. cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
Sift flour, sugar, soda and salt together. Bring to boil butter, water and cocoa. Pour hot mixture
over dry ingredients. Mix 2 eggs, 1/2 cup buttermilk and 1 tsp. vanilla. Add to mixture; mix well.
Bake 350 / 30-35 minutes.
I used a cream cheese frosting.
