I’m not usually into chocolate cake, but this cake is the bomb. I’ve recently discovered buttermilk and love it in baked goods.  And, really,  anything with 2 sticks of butter is worth trying, don’t you agree?  Try it and let me know how you like it!

Chocolate Cake

  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1-1/2 tsp vanilla

In a saucepan combine butter, cocoa and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat.

In a bowl mix flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate small bowl mix the eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla.

Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture.

Then add the cocoa mixture.

Mix well until blended.

Pour into two 8-inch round cake pans.

Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes.
