Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1¾ cups granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 1½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup heavy cream (for frosting)
  • 12 oz semisweet chocolate (for frosting)
  • ½ cup unsalted butter (for frosting)

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla extract. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in the boiling water. The batter will be thin, but that’s what makes the cake moist.
  5. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared pans and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Let the cakes cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then remove from pans and cool completely on wire racks.
  7. For the frosting, heat the heavy cream until it’s just about to boil, then pour it over the chopped chocolate and butter. Let it sit for a minute, then whisk until smooth. Allow the frosting to cool and thicken before using it to frost the cake.
  8. Place one cake layer on a serving platter, frost the top, then add the second layer and frost the top and sides of the cake.
  9. Admire your masterpiece before slicing and savoring each delectable bite!
