Bring to a boil:
2 sticks of butter
4 Tablespoons of cocoa
1 cup of water
Pour the boiled mixture over 2 cups of sugar mixed with 2 cups of flour and 1 tsp. cinnamon.
1 tsp. baking soda mixed with 1/2 cup buttermilk (regular milk will work)
1 tsp. vanilla
Bake in well-greased 9×13 pan at 350 for 30-35 minutes. Or bake in a 12×15 sheet pan for about 20 minutes.
Frost the cake while still warm (but partially cooled).
Boil 1 stick butter, 4 tablespoons cocoa, and 1/3 cup milk.
Add 1 box (3 1/2 cups) powdered sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla, and 1 cup of chopped walnuts.
If you are making this cake, may I recommend that you invite someone over to share it with? Our little kids didn’t make much of a dent in it. I’ve been eating it for a week, and it’s yummy, but not so good for my diet!
