2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk, I sour milk with vinegar
1 teaspoon baking soda


1/2 cup butter
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
5 tablespoons milk
4 cups confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 15x10 inch jelly roll pan with Pam.

Bring 1 cup butter, water and 4 tablespoons cocoa to a boil in a large saucepan. While still hot, remove from heat and add 2 cups flour, 2 cups white sugar, and salt. Mix well. Beat in eggs, sour cream, and baking soda. Do not beat too long.Pour batter into greased 15x10 inch jelly roll pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean.
