After asking for suggestions of something to bake one day, our good friend Curt recommended Chocolate Buttermilk Cake and a tall glass of ice cold milk. This delicious chocolate cake is so blissfully moist and good. The best part is that it's a cinch to bake. One warning, proceed to make this cake with caution! You'll eat more of it than you planned, you won't even realize it until you look at the pan and wonder where it went. Seriously you won't be able to stop! It's sneaky and wonderful and the same time!
Chocolate Buttermilk Cake - recipe given to me by Curt and Reita
2 Cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 Cups sugar
2 sticks butter
1 Cup water
4 Tablespoons cocoa
1/2 C buttermilk (If you don't have buttermilk add 1/2 teas. to 1/2 cup of milk, let sit for a few minutes)
1 teaspoon vanilla
chopped nuts (optional, I never add these)
Sift flour, soda and sugar, set aside
Melt butter, water and cocoa over low heat. Bring to a rapid boil then pour over dry ingredients, add buttermilk, eggs and vanilla. Mix well, pour into a greased and floured 17x11x3/4 (jelly roll pan). Bake for approx. 20 minutes @ 400 degrees.
1 stick butter
3 1/2 C powder sugar
4 Tablespoon cocoa
7 Tablespoons buttermilk
Melt butter, add powdered sugar, cocoa and buttermilk, mix well.
Ice cake while it's still hot.
You will love this cake, that is a promise! You should probably make one today!
