Why I Love This Recipe

I have made a couple of versions of this cake and this one is by far my favorite. I don't remember who posted it on TOH. It is easy to do and very moist. The taste is heavenly.

As far as I am concerned, this is the worlds best cake. Make the holes tiny, or else you have ugly holes showing after the frosting hardens. BUT it is so good regardless.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 sticks butter
4 Tbls cocoa
1 1/2 cups water divided
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
Cake frosting


Melt the butter, cocoa and 1 cup water in a saucepan.

Mix the flour and sugar in a bowl then add to the butter/cocoa/water mixture.

Stir in the rest of the water, buttermilk, baking soda, eggs and vanilla.

Pour in a greased jellyroll pan.

Bake 20 min at 40.

When cake is still warm but not hot, poke small holes with fork in cake.

Pour hot frosting over warm cake.
