Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a 9x13 baking dish.
For the cake, add the flour, sugar, cocoa, salt, and baking soda to a mixing bowl and whisk to combine.
Add the remaining ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk thoroughly to combine until smooth.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool completely before frosting.
For the frosting, cream the butter and cocoa until smooth & fluffy with an electric mixer fitted with a paddle. Add the sugar and vanilla and continue to mix until combined. Slowly add the milk until you reach the desired consistency. Scrape the sides of the bowl and stir to fully incorporate.
