I got this recipe from Pointless meals.  It was fantastic!  It reminded me of those yummy southern homemade chocolate cakes my step mom makes.  It has been a challenge for me to find a good WW birthday cake.  THIS IS IT!

2 cups sugar

2 cups flour

2 sticks butter

4 Tbsp baking cocoa

1 cup water

1/2 cup low fat buttermilk

1 tsp vanilla

2 eggs

1 tsp baking soda

Mix sugar and flour in a large bowl.   In a saucepan, melt the butter, cocoa and water.  Bring to a boil; remove from heat and pour over flour and sugar.  Mix well.  Add remaining ingredients.  Pour into a jellyroll pan (15x10x1) coated with cooking spray.  It will look like it will cook over, but have faith 🙂  It will be ok.  Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.

About 5 minutes before cake is done, make the frosting:

6 Tbsp light stick butter

1/4 cup skim milk

4 Tbsp cocoa

1 tsp vanilla

1 lb powdered sugar

Melt butter, cocoa, and milk in a saucepan.  Remove from heat and add powdered sugar and vanilla.  Mix well.  Pour over warm cake and spread.

Makes 48 servings for 3 ww pts (sorry no plus pts available)
