    1      cup           Margarine
      1/2  cup           Margarine
    4      tablespoons   Cocoa
    5      tablespoons   Evaporated milk
    1      cup           Cold water
    1      cup           Pecans  -- chopped
    1      teaspoon      Baking soda
    4      tablespoons   Cocoa
    1      teaspoon      Vanilla extrac
    1      teaspoon      Vanilla extract
    1      teaspoon      Ground cinnamon
    1      pound         Powdered sugar
      1/4  teaspoon      Salt
 Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Sift flour and sugar, set aside. In a
 saucepan, bring the
 margarine, cocoa and water to a boil; remove from heat.
 In a large bowl, mix all remaining cake ingredients. Add the flour
 mixture and cocoa mixture,
 stirring well. Bake in a greased and floured 9x13 pan for 20 to 30 min.
 Check for doneness with
 a clean toothpick. Ten minutes into the baking of the cake, prepare the
 frosting. Place the
 margarine, cocoa, and milk in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from
 the heat and add
 the remaining ingredients. Beat until smooth. FROST THE CAKE AS SOON AS
 OF THE OVEN. Let it cool a little before cutting, if you can't possible
 hold out!. This cake is so
 good, you'd eat it with one foot in the fire if you had to.
