Why I Love This Recipe

"Danny's not much of a chocolate fan, but he has asked for this cake since his 3rd birthday without fail...I have been told in our house that it only compares to (yet scores just behind) hot fudge cake...I take that as a pretty good compliment." ~ Judy

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cup Sugar
1 3/4 cup Flour
3/4 cup Cocoa Powder
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
Cocoa Powder
Powdered Sugar


Oven Temperature: 350°F

*Stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt

*Add eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla

*Put 1 cup water in microwave on high for 2 minutes - during this, mix bowl (this helps you know you stirred mix for 2 minutes and heats water all at once)

*Stir in water, slowly

*Pour in greased and floured pans - I usually make as bundt cake

*Bake until wooden pick comes out of center without being gooey, depending on pan how long (the bundt cake I start checking at 35 minutes)

*Cool and then drizzle with chocolate


*Mix cocoa, powdered sugar, and water until desired taste and consistency
