Stove Top Chocolate Cake

1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 400. In saucepan,
mix together margarine, water, and
cocoa and bring to a boil. Remove
from heat. Sift together the sugar
and flour, and add to the saucepan
mixture. Combine eggs, buttermilk,
baking soda and vanilla. Add to
saucepan and mix until smooth. Pour
into greased 9x13 pan 20-25
minutes. Frost while cake is still
warm.
