Texas Chocolate Cake
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

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.

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.
