what you need
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4-5 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • Icing ingredients
  • 4-6 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • 1 box confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
make it
Mix first four ingredients together in a sauce pan and cook on medium heat until the mixture bubbles. Sift together 2 cups sugar, 2 cups flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Add to the first mixture and mix well. Mix buttermilk, vanilla and eggs and mix well and add to the other mixture. Mix well. Pour into a greased 13x9x2-inch pan.

Bake in a 350°F oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Ice when warm as the icing hardens as it cools.

For Icing: Mix cocoa, butter and milk in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the sugar and pecans. Mix well and pour over warm cake.
A very rich moist cake that leaves you asking for more. It sounds like a lot of ingredients and a lot of trouble but it is very very easy to make.

Requested at a lot of large get togethers and birthdays.. this is a very old recipe given to me by my Mother some 40 years ago.
