 Ingredients List

  • ------------------------------------CAKE------------------------------------
  • 2 c Sugar
  • 2 c Flour
  • 1 ts Baking soda
  • 1 c Margarine (2 sticks)
  • 4 ts Cocoa; generous
  • 1 c ;Water
  • 1/2 c Buttermilk
  • 2 Egg; beaten
  • 1 pn Salt


1/2 c Margarine
4 ts Cocoa; generous
6 ts Buttermilk
1 lb Sugar, confectioners
1 ts Vanilla
1 c Nuts; chopped, or to taste

Cake: In a mixing bowl, mix sugar, flour and soda together. In a saucepan,
melt margarine; stir in cocoa and water and bring to a boil. Pour hot
mixture over dry ingredients; stir well. Mix in buttermilk, eggs and salt.
Pour into a greased jelly roll pan. Bake at 400 degrees F. for about 15
minutes, until top springs back when touched.

Frosting: In same saucepan used for cake, melt margarine. Stir in cocoa and
buttermilk and bring to a rapid boil. Remove from heat and stir in the
sugar and vanilla; blend thoroughly. Stir in nuts. Spread over cake as soon
as it comes out of the oven. Be prepared to clean up some drips.

If there are kids around, let them clean up the drips ~ this frosting is
like fudge! The frosting is so good ~ it's almost like the cake exists just
to give a base to the frosting. Mom cuts the frosting recipe down (about in
half) but I like it just the way it is - lots.
