Trying to find that special something for the man in your life to make him feel special on Valentines Day is always an interesting opportunity.

Let me share the secret of buttermilk!

Yes, buttermilk.....it is the secret ingredient to the most MOIST Chocolate Cake ever!

  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup oil
  • t tsp. vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup boiling water

In large bowl blend dry ingredients.  Add buttermilk, oil, vanilla & eggs.  Mix well.  Add boiling water and beat well.  Batter will be thin. Pour into greased 9 x 12 pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 to 35 minutes.
