Chocolate Fudge Cake Recipe

I was recently asked for my favorite Chocolate Cake Recipe.  It would hands down be the Chocolate Fudge Cake.  Here is the recipe.
Chocolate Fudge Cake

2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 stick margarine (or unsalted butter)
1 cup water
½ cup vegetable oil
4 Tablespoons cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ cup buttermilk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix sugar and flour in large bowl. 

In sauce pan: heat margarine, water, oil and cocoa until it boils.  Pour this heated mixture over the sugar/flour.  Add remaining ingredients (baking soda, buttermilk, eggs and vanilla) and  mix well.

Pour into greased baking pan(s).  Bake as follows (or until done according to your oven):
            10 X 15 sheet pan  - 20 minutes
            Two 9” round pans-  25-30 minutes

Let cool for 20 minutes. 

I got this from a friend, Sally Arconti, during one of my many cake decorating classes years ago.
