Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan.
  2. Sift together the flour, salt, baking soda and cocoa, set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the 1 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 cup butter until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the 1 cup buttermilk and 1 teaspoon vanilla, add alternately to the mixture with the dry ingredients. Pour into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for about 45 minutes in the preheated oven. Prepare the topping while the cake is baking.
  4. In a small saucepan, combine the remaining 1 cup of buttermilk, 2 cups sugar and margarine. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, and boil for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool for a few minutes before adding vanilla. As soon as the cake comes out of the oven, slowly pour the hot topping over the entire cake. It may seem like too much, but the cake will absorb it.

The actual cake part of this recipe was really good but the "glaze" that you pour over it just totally ruined the entire recipe. Everyone in my family agreed that this was just disgusting and the whole cake was tossed in the trash, sadly. I will definately use the cake recipe again but next time...we'll use a nice chocolate buttercream frosting on the top!

Cake cooked up beautifully and had a nice sweet taste. However, there is no chocolaty to this. 1 Tbsp of cocoa is only enough to color it beige, not flavor it nor make it chocolate tasting. The icing after boiling 5 minutes seems to reach softball sugar stage and isn't absorbed by the cake. If after cooling that changes I will update my review. Thanks Karin, but I won't be making this one again.

This cake, when warm was too soppy (from the topping) to cut well. It was also too sweet for my family.
