The Best Chocolate Cake You Ever Ate

The Best Chocolate Cake You Ever Ate

I also made this chocolate cake for Courtney’s party on Sunday.  It was pretty good but I’m not sure it was the best chocolate cake I ever ate.  I didn’t make the frosting because we put whipped cream and strawberries on top so maybe you need the frosting to make it the best.  It comes from “All Recipes”.

cake

2 cups sugar

2 cups flour

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup oil

1 cup water

1/4 cup cocoa (I’ll do 1/2 cup the next time I make this)

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup buttermilk

2 eggs

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

frosting

1/2 cup butter

1/4 cup cocoa

1/4 cup milk

4 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup chopped pecans

1  For the cake, preheat oven to 375.  Spray 9 x 13″ pan with cooking spray.

2  Sift or whisk flour and sugar together.

3  Combine butter, oil, water and cocoa in saucepan.  Bring to a boil, remove from heat and add flour/sugar mix.

4  Dissolve baking soda in buttermilk then add with eggs, salt and vanilla to batter and mix well.

5  Pour into pan and bake for 20 minutes.

6  For frosting, combine butter, cocoa and milk in saucepan and bring to boil.

7  Remove from heat and stir sugar, vanilla and nuts.  Pour frosting over hot cake.
