baking soda
2 stick
butter
4
level tablespoons cocoa
1 c

1/2 c

FROSTING

START THIS AS SOON AS YOU PUT THE CAKE IN THE OVEN!

1 box
powdered sugar, or 4 1/2 cups
1 tsp
vanilla
1 c
pecans (optional)
1/2 c
coconut is optional
1 stick
butter
4 Tbsp
cocoa
6 Tbsp
buttermilk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix sugar, flour and soda together and set aside.
2
Melt 2 sticks butter, 1 cup of water and 4 level tablespoons cocoa until boiling. Pour over dry mixture. Mix well - I don't use my mixer - it's easy to mix by hand.
3
Add buttermilk and mix. Then add egg and vanilla.

Pour into a prepared sheet cake pan and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.

Frost immediately after taking out of the oven.
4
Frosting: Melt together and bring to a boil: 1 stick margarine, 4 TBS cocoa, 6 TBS. buttermilk.

Pour over powdered sugar, add vanilla and pecans. I use coconut sometimes, but not always. This is just as good without pecans and coconut.
