Mama use to make this cake all the time! It's my go to chocolate cake IF I do not have to take it out of the's just to moist to even consider that! This is not a light cake, it's easy, usually have all the ingredients in the house (with a buttermilk substitution) and RICH. Wonderful with homemade ice-cream.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix Sugar, Flour, Coco together.
  2. Mix Eggs, Oil and Water together. Add to Dry Ingredients.
  3. Mix soda, buttermilk and vanilla together and add to mixture.
  4. Pour into a a 9X13 pan. I always grease and flour, but not really sure if this step is even necessary, you would never want to take this cake out of the pan. I can't imagine it ever sticking.
  5. 350 oven for 60 minutes.
  6. * I never have buttermilk in the house, so I use Recipe #124413. I also use Kittencal's #89207.
