    Where is the oil in this recipe? The directions say to heat it with the butter, cocoa, and water, but I can't see how much to use. When in doubt, use 1/2 cup. :-) That's what I'll try (unless I hear back from you about it.)

    if i used regular milk instead of buttermilk, would that make the cake a lot different?

    My name is Bill...I am a chocoholic, now are you happy! I said it and don;t regret it! lol!
    This girlish figure of mine is going to heck in a handbasket dear!
    Going to see if I can bribe, errrr, ask my daughter to make this. Me and baking is like turning lead into gold, it just doesn't happen. Looks good going in the oven, and coming out it's "Houston, we have a problem.."
