Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake
A cake from scratch doesn’t have to take all day to make! This old fashioned chocolate cake is made even better by a tangy buttermilk pecan icing.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Grease and flour a 9×13 inch pan.
In a saucepan melt 1 cup of butter.
Stir in 1 cup water and 4 tablespoons cocoa powder.
Remove from heat and set aside.
In a medium bowl dissolve the baking soda in 1/2 cup of buttermilk.
Stir in the eggs and vanilla.
Mix in the cooled cocoa mixture.
