If you are curious (and even if you aren't), here is the recipe and how I make my favorite chocolate cake

Ken's Mom's Chocolate Cake
Dutch processed cocoa powder will make a richer and darker cake. Buttermilk can be substituted with regular milk or sour milk. The secret is, of course, Love. And some butter.

In a saucepan, boil:
2 sticks butter
1 cup water

Pour boiling ingredients over:
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
4 TBSP cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 eggs

Directions:
Mix ingredients together until smooth. Pour into a greased 9x13" baking pan. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until done

Frosting:
Melt 1 stick butter with 5 TBSP buttermilk
Pour over 3 1/2 cups-4 cups powdered sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla, and 4 TBSP cocoa powder.

Frost cake while still warm.
