Chocolate Pecan Frosting
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, sugar and salt. In a deep saucepan, place the water, butter, oil and baking chocolate. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Add chocolate mixture to dry ingredients and mix well on medium speed of mixer until well blended. While still hot, add the eggs, vanilla and red food coloring. Mix at medium speed until well blended. Combine the baking soda and the buttermilk, and add to the batter. Mix at medium speed only until blended. Grease and flour a 2-1/2x10-1/2x16-inch baking pan. Pour in batter and bake in a 350°F oven for 40-45 minutes. Do not over bake. (If desired, the batter can be baked in 2 9x13-inch pans. Reduce baking time slightly.) Pour Chocolate Pecan Frosting over hot cake.
To reduce cost or richness, substitute 8 tablespoons cocoa for the 1/2 pound chocolate in both the cake and frosting.
