1/2 cup vegetable oil
5 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups AP flour

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 both flours, 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 the batter into prepared pan.
Bake 25 to 35 minutes. Allow the cake to cool completely in the pan or it may not release well.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir till smooth. Drizzle on top of cooled cake.
