2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 sticks (1/2 lb) margarine
4 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 cup water
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 large eggs


Sift the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl.

Melt the margarine and mix with the cocoa powder and water.

Bring to a rapid boil and pour over the dry ingredients.

Add the buttermilk and eggs and beat until all ingredients are thoroughly incorporated.

Bake in a cookie sheet pan with edges in a preheated oven at 350° for 15 to 20 minutes.

For icing, melt 1 stick of margarine then add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder and 6 tablespoons of buttermilk.

Bring to a boil and add 1 box of powdered (confectioners) sugar and 1 cup black walnuts.

Spread the icing over the cake while the cake is still hot.
