4 tablespoons dark cocoa powder
6 tablespoons cream
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup pecans chopped

Pour the boiling liquid into the flour mixture and beat until blended well. Add the eggs, buttermilk, soda, and vanilla to the batter and beat well.
Pour into a greased and floured 9″x13″ sheet cake pan, and bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes, or until tooth pick inserted into the center comes out almost clean.
For Frosting: Combine the butter and cocoa in a saucepan, and heat the mixture until it melts. Add the cream and mix well. Beat in the remaining ingredients.Spread on the hot cake while it is still warm.
Cool and cut. Serve with a dollop of your favorite vanilla ice cream…mmmmmmmm!
