Here is the delicious recipe for 'Jeri Ward' cake that I promise will have your family begging for more!!!

Ingredients: For cake

2 cups flour
2 cups granulated sugar
4 tbsp cocoa
2 sticks margarin
1 cup water
2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
dash of salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine 2 cups of flour and 2 cups of granulated sugar in a large mixing bowl. Then bring to a boil 4 tbsp of cocoa, 2 sticks of butter and 1 cup of water in a medium size sauce pan. Pour the boiled sauce over the flour and sugar mixture and stir together until completely blended. In a separate small bowl, mix 2 lightly beaten eggs, 1/2 cup buttermilk, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp vanilla and dash of salt. Combine the mixture in the small bowl with the mixture in the large bowl and beat together well. Pour mixture into a greased 13 x 9 baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes.

Ingredients: For icing

2 tbsp cocoa
3 tbsp milk
1/2 stick margarine
1/2 box powdered sugar
1 tbsp vanilla

Five minutes before the cake is done begin combining the icing as follows: Bring to a boil in a large sauce pan 2 tbsp cocoa, 3 tbsp milk and 1/2 stick of margarine. Remove from stove immediately after being brought to a boil and add 1/2 box of powdered sugar and 1 tbsp vanilla. Beat until creamy. You need to ice the cake as soon as you remove it from the oven.

Please exercise caution after icing the cake! The smell can travel long distances and you may be attacked by starving family and friends.
