This is the buttermilk chocolate cake I've been making since 1969. (A super neighbor gave the recipe to me). Sometimes it's called Texas Sheet Cake, Texas Brownies, Buttermilk Sheet Cake, Brownies for a Crowd, etc. Some reviews were low and said the eggs turned into scrambled eggs. That might be due to the process, not the ingredients. The original calls for the water, cocoa, & butter to be brought to a boil. Then to pour the hot mixture over sugar, flour, & baking soda in a large bowl. Add buttermilk, eggs, & vanilla last. Then pour it into either a 9 x 13" pan, or a large cookie sheet pan with narrow sides. Some recipes call for the soda to be added to the buttermilk. Either way works, & I think that if you follow this technique, your cake will turn out perfectly. Also, some recipes call for a very hot oven: 400 degrees, if baked in the cookie sheet pan. And to bake it for a shorter amount of time if doing this.
