DIRECTIONS

  • To make the cake, position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees. Lightly butter and flour a 13x9-inch baking pan, tapping out the excess flour.
  • Whisk the flour, granulated sugar, baking soda and salt in a large bowl to combine. In medium saucepan, bring the butter, margarine, water and cocoa to boil over high heat, stirring to dissolve the butter and margarine.
  • Pour into flour mixture and whisk well. Add the sour cream, then the eggs and vanilla, and beat well. Spread evenly in the pan.
  • Bake until the cake springs back when pressed in the center, about 35 minutes. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack.
  • To make frosting, bring the butter, milk and cocoa to a boil in a large saucepan over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the butter. Gradually stir in the confectioners' sugar, then the vanilla. Stir in the chopped pecans. Pour over the warm cake.
  • Cool the cake in the pan on the rack. Cut into pieces and serve directly from pan.
