Church Ladies Buttermilk Chocolate Cake

2 c. flour
2 c. sugar
2 sticks butter or margarine
4 T. cocoa powder
1 c. water
1/2 c. buttermilk
1 t. vanilla
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
2 large eggs
Frosting (Recipe below)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Combine flour and sugar.  Heat butter, cocoa and water in saucepan; bring to a boil.  Pour over dry ingredients; mix.  Pour into 13 x 9 inch pan.  Bake 20 minutes.

Frosting:
1 stick butter or margarine
4 T. cocoa powder
5 T. milk
1 t. vanilla
1 c. chopped pecans
1 (16 oz) box powdered sugar
1/4 t. cinnamon

Before cake is done, combine butter, cocoa, and milk in a saucepan.  Heat until butter is melted.  Remove from heat, add remaining ingredients.  Keep warm.

I LOVE this recipe.  It's my all time favorite cake brownie recipe. 
I actually make this in a large jelly roll type pan.  They seem last a little longer.
