I finally did it! I made a cake that didn't taste like crap. I should have stuck to the easiest recipes in the first place. This one is from my Fannie Farmer book.

Chocolate Buttermilk Cake

1.5 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 (325 if using glass pan). Butter and lightly flour two 8 inch rounds or one 9x13. Mix flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt in bowl. Add the rest, beating until smooth.
Spread in pan(s) and bake, about 20-25 min for small or 35-45 minutes for large. Test with toothpick. Cool before frosting.

I tried to make frosting as well, but it didn't work out. If anyone could share their favorite frosting recipe, let me know! For this cake, I stuck to Betty Crocker.
