Delicious Chocolate Cake

Some call this a sheet cake, others call it brownies. I call it good. I love this cake. One thing I really love about this cake is how easy it is; you don't even need a mixer to make it. The cinnamon adds a nice flavor or you can leave it out. You can also substitute half of the butter in the cake for applesauce. It really is a delicious cake, or soft brownie, however you see it.

1 cup butter
1 cup water
4 Tablespoons cocoa
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine first three ingredients and cook over low heat or in microwave until butter is melted. Mix dry ingredients together in large bowl and add the cocoa mixture. Beat well, add the eggs, milk and vanilla and beat again until well blended. Poor in a greased jelly roll pan and bake for 30 minutes.

While still warm frost with the frosting below.

1/2 cup butter
3 Tablespoons cocoa
1 pound powdered sugar
6 Tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Melt butter and cocoa in microwave or small pan over low heat. Add to the powdered sugar in a medium bowl. Add milk and vanilla and beat well until smooth. Frost as soon as it comes from the oven, it will form a glaze.

Another great recipe is my new favorite cookie!
