It makes the best homemade moist chocolate cake ever, trust me :)

2 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 eggs (large)
1 tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 cups canola oil
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Grease and flour the 13x6 pan
3. Beat all dry ingredients
4. Add liquid ingredients except hot water and beat at medium speed
5. Add hot water then beat until well blended.
6. Bake for 35 minutes

Whipped Icing : Mocha / Chocolate flavor
