“We got this chocolate cake recipe from my aunt. It is a good recipe if you are looking to make an easy, good homemade chocolate cake.”

chocolate cake


1 cup butter
4 Tbs cocoa
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp soda
1 tsp vanilla
2 beaten eggs
1 1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup butter
6 tsp buttermilk
6 tsp cocoa
1 lb powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)


Boil cocoa, butter, and water. Cool for a few minutes. Pour over the remainder of the ingredients and stir. Pour into a greased and floured pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. (9×13 pan or 2 round pans)

Icing: Almost bring all ingredients to a boil. Remove from heat. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. If desired add the nuts and spread while warm. This icing should be a little runny and it will thicken when it cools.

    Looks delicious. I have never made a cake before and rarely cook. So I am wondering about the absence of flour in this recipe. Is that correct? Thanks. Jeffrey

    No flour?

    Is this supposed to be a flourless chocolate cake or is the flour just missing from the ingredient list?

    I am sure that it was an oversight, but flour was left out of the cake ingredient list. I believe it would take about two cups of flour, right? Not being a seasoned cook, I made it according to the above directions and all I had was a bubbly chocolate mixture at the end of 35 minutes. Then I read the ingredients closely and noticed that there was no flour. I am sure it was an accidental oversight. I am sure the cake will be delicious when the flour is put in it.

    Shouldn’t there be flour in a cake?

    You haven’t mentioned flour in the above recipe? Is it supposed to be that way?

    My daughter made this and baked it before realizing there is no flour in the recipe. It obviously turned out badly ):
