I was given this recipe and cake pan for a wedding gift. I didn't try it for a few years because it sounded really complicated. I wish I would have tried it earlier because this chocolate cake is moist, delicious, and turns out great every time!
First mix together the dry ingredients-
2 Cups of flour
2 cups of sugar
4 T of cocoa
Then mix the hot mixture on the stove- 1/2 C of butter
1/2 C of vegetable oil
1 C of water
Let the ingredients come to a boil
Add the hot mixture to the dry mixture
Stir together well
Add 1 C of buttermilk
1 t of soda
1 t vanilla
2 eggs, beaten, I just beat them with a fork
add the eggs
Mix together well
Pour into a well-greased and floured jelly roll pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Melt 1/2 c of butter, (I use the same pan as before, any way to cut down on dish consumption)
Add 4 T of cocoa
6 T of milk
Bring ingredients to a boil
Take off the heat and add 1 c at a time, 3-4 cups of powdered sugar
Use an electric mixer and mix well; you can also mix in nuts once you have the icing made, if you like.
Pour over the cake.
YUM! Serve with milk...delicious!
I have a printable recipe if you need one.
