  2. Whisk buttermilk, vegetable oil, eggs, 1/3 cup cocoa powder, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth. Whisk flour, sugar, baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a separate bowl. Add dry ingredients to buttermilk mixture and whisk in hot water. Spread batter in prepared cake pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until set and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean or with moist crumbs, about 35 minutes. Let cool.
