Fabulous Chocolate Cake



Fabulous Chocolate Cake has been a family favorite on my mom and grandma's side forever. So when my grandparents, parents, and great aunt and uncle came for the weekend, it was just the right thing to please everyone!

This was my first time making the family recipe and I was happy that it turned out. It is chocolaty, nutty, and rich!



Fabulous Chocolate Cake

Mix in a bowl and set aside:
2 C. sugar
2 C flour

Bring to a boil and pour over the sugar/flour:
1 C butter
1/4 C cocoa
1 C water

Add and mix in:
1/2 C buttermilk
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 t. baking soda
1 t. vanilla

Pour into a 13x9 greased baking pan and bake at 350 for around 30 minutes. When the cake has about 10 minutes left, start the frosting and keep it hot on the stove because you'll need to pour the hot frosting on the hot cake when it comes out of the oven.

Bring to a boil:
1/2 C butter
4 T cocoa
6 T buttermilk

Add:
1 lb powdered sugar
1 t vanilla
1/2 t mapleine
2 C chopped walnuts
