I found this recipe on the food blog, "The Food Librarian". This recipe is similar to Texas Sheetcake for two reasons-- you use the stove to melt the ingredients, no mixer and it has chocolate. Obviously, this recipe uses a bundt pan. This cake is moist, with just the right amount of cinnamon. Definitely, a "go to" for a fast dessert for unexpected company.

cup vegetable oil
tablespoons cocoa powder
teaspoon baking soda
eggs, lightly beaten
teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a large bundt pan with cooking spray. Put butter, water, oil, and cocoa in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Meanwhile, whisk together flour, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl. Pour the chocolate mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix well. Then, add the buttermilk and baking soda. Mix together the eggs, cinnamon, and vanilla in a small bowl, and add to the batter. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in a Bundt at 375 for 30-35 minutes (the original recipe says 25 minutes but mine has been raw at this point). Cool in the pan (I took depanned mine after about 20 minutes with no problems). Allow cake to cool completely in the pan.
