Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bring water, butter, and cocoa to a boil stirring constantly. Remove from heat and set aside. Mix flour, sugar, soda, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in eggs, buttermilk and vanilla. Add cocoa mixture and mix until well blended. Pour into greased 15 ½ x 10 ½ x 1 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
