Here is my Chocolate Cake made with buttermilk. We used this recipe at church and sold them at Thanksgicing and Christmas. Use 2 - 8x8 foil pans to sale or a 9x13 for home.
Chocolate Cake with icing
2 sticks butter, 1/2 cup water, 4 Tbls. Cocoa , 2 cups flour, 1 cup buttermilk, 1 tsp. vanilla, 2 cups sugar, 2 beaten eggs, 1 tsp. baking soda
Melt butter, cocoa and water in small saucepan. Pour over other ingredients. Mix well. It will be watery. That's okay. Spray pan with Pam and dust with sugar. (Not flour) Bake at 350 for 30 min or until it tast done.
melt 1 stick butter, 6 Tbls. Milk, 4 Tbls. Cocoa in same small saucepan used before. Pour over 1 box confectioners sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla,dash salt, 1 cup chopped pecans. Pour over hot cake. (I take cake out of oven, then make icing) Cake is still warm and it cools to be an awesome fudgy moist cake.
