DISCLAIMER: This picture is NOT what the cake will look like.  It is a vanilla cake with chocolate icing, but it is a punch holes and pour in icing type cake. This was just a pretty picture.  My cousin Leslie submitted this recipe to our family cookbook.  It is a little bit of work, but SO good.
2 cups sugar
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups self rising flour
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla

combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour into greased and floured baking pan.
bake in 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.

a few minutes before cake comes out, start your icing.
1/4 cup cocoa
1 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
2 ups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
dash of salt

mix in double boiler. Bring to boil and let boil for 2 minutes.

go get your cake out of the oven!!  Poke holes throughout and pour icing over the cake.

this cake goes GREAT with vanilla ice cream.
