- 2 eggs
- 6 teaspoons cocoa powder
- 1 cup boiling water
- In a bowl combine the sugar and margarine well and then add the buttermilk, vinegar, vanilla and eggs.
- Using a 2 cup measuring cup put the cocoa in and pour the boiling water overtop and mix well.
- Add this to the above mixture.
- Combine the flour and baking soda and add to the cocoa mixture.
- The batter will be thin.
- Pour the batter into a greased and floured 9 x 13 pan.
- Bake a 350 for 30-40 minutes or when tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
@rachelmjohns- try subbing 1 cup hot STRONG coffee in place of water. =)
It was very good but it needs something else to really make it amazing....
Very moist , good homemade cake! I used Simple Chocolate Glaze to drip down over the top of the cakes. Yes, instead of one large cake I made individual bundt cakes. Thanks very much for posting! Good recipe! Made for the Cake-A-Thon in memory of Chef-I-Am.
