1/2 C oil
1 stick butter
3 T cocoa
2 C sugar
2 C flour
1/2 t. salt
2 eggs + 1 egg yolk

Pour the boiling Cola mixture into the flour mixture. Using an electric hand mixer, beat well. Add the eggs, buttermilk, soda and vanilla and beat well. Really mix it good till it gets smooth.
Pour mixture into a greased and floured 17″X11″inch bar pan (I use my Pampered Chef Lge Bar pan) (can use a 9″X13″ cake pan, but I prefer the *bar* pan)
Bake at 350* for 30 to 35 minutes.
Cool for about 10 minutes before frosting.
