Brown Mountain Pecan Cake



1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
3 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup warm water


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. To make the cake, in a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the buttermilk to the creamed mixture. Stir in the vanilla and water. Pour into 3 greased 9-inch cake pans. Bake for about 45 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the pans and cool on wire racks.
