Cinnamon Chocolate Bundt Cake

I've been wanting to make this ever since I got a new bundt pan after Valentine's day. ($5 at Walmart AND it came with a carrying case which I can use for other cakes too! And it's not a crappy one either. It's actually pretty durable.) I bought the ingredients last week sometime and didn't get around to making it until today. It's getting ready to come out of the oven so hopefully it's good! (The batter sure was!! :)) I'll post pictures once it's finished and cooled.

Cinnamon Chocolate Cake
-Vintage Victuals

1/2 cup butter
1 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
5 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a large bundt pan with cooking spray. Put butter, water, oil, and cocoa in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil.
Meanwhile, whisk together flour, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl. Pour the chocolate mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix well. Then, add the buttermilk and baking soda. Mix together the eggs, cinnamon, and vanilla in a small bowl, and add to the batter. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake 25 minutes. Allow cake to cool completely in the pan.
