"Perfectly Chocolate" Chocolate Cake and Frosting

Sunday, March 29, 2009

I made this cake the other day and it was gone very quickly! It is yummy and moist and addicting :)

The ingredients:

2 cups sugar
1- 3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup oil
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup boiling water

1/2 cup butter or margarine
2/3 cup cocoa
1/3 cup milk
3 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9-inch round pans or one 9x13 inch pan. Combine dry ingredients in large bowl.

Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla to the dry mixture. Beat on medium speed with mixer for two minutes.

Stir in boiling water. (The batter will be thin)
Pour into pans or pan and bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick or knife comes out clean. Make the frosting while the cake is baking.

Frosting directions:

Melt the butter. Stir in the cocoa. Alternately add powdered sugar and milk beating on medium speed to spreading consistency. Add more milk if necessary. Stir in vanilla. Makes about two cups.

Once the cake is cooled a bit, frost it with this yummy frosting and enjoy!
