Chocolate Yummy Cake
In mixer or large bowl:
2 c. sugar
2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt
In sauce pan:
1 c. butter
1 c. water
1/2 c. cocoa
In separate bowl:

1/2 c. buttermilk
2 beaten eggs
1 tsp. vanilla

(Can you tell this is a well loved and cooked often recipe?)

Cook cocoa mixture till boiling. Add to sugar/flour combo to mixer slowly. (COOKS NOTE: In this recipe, it says to put the cocoa in with the water/butter pan. I don't. I mix it in with the flour prior to adding the wet ingredients. It works better for me but I have to make sure that I mix the cocoa into the flour well to make sure that it doesn't get lumpy.)

If you don't have any buttermilk, don't go to the store! Put about a teaspoon of vinegar into your measuring cup and add milk until you have 1/2 cup. Let it sit on the counter while you are mixing your other stuff and vola! Buttermilk. Lemon juice works too.

See how lumpy it gets!

Add buttermilk, then eggs and vanilla.

Pour into two greased 8x8 pans or one 9x13 and bake at 350 for about 20-30 minutes. Do not over cook!


1 stick butter
6 tbs. milk
3 1/2 tbs. cocoa

In saucepan cook above three ingredients till boiling. Add 1 box confectioners sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla. Pour over cakes.

Sho is tasty, sho is yummy, so is good in every one's tummy!
