THIS RECIPE WAS GIVEN TO ME BY AN
OLDER LADY WHEN I WAS JUST A YOUNG BRIDE.I HAVE BEEN MAKING IT FOR SOME 40 YEARS AND MY HUSBAND STILL LOVES IT. THANKS MISS NITA!

ps. Miss Nita thought that the only butter or margarine you should bake with was "Land of Lakes" but I have used others and this cake still taste good.

How to Make 20 MINUTE CHOCOLATE CAKE

Step-by-Step

    Heat the 2 sticks butter, 1 cup of water and 4 tbls. chocolate to a boil. Boil for 1 minute.
    -Add the flour and sugar to the hot mixture and stir in the Eggs,Buttermilk,Soda and Vanilla.

    -Pour into a 11 x 16 inch pan and cook for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. (I have used a 9 X 13 inch pan, but had to cook it a little longer. Use toothpick to test for doneness).

    Melt 1 stick butter, 4 tbls. chocolate and 6 tablespoons of milk over the heat until hot.
    Add this liquid to 1 box of sifted powder sugar and add 1 tsp. vanilla. Pour over the hot cake.
