Death By Chocolate Cake Recipe: This Extreme Chocolate Cake Recipe May Be the Best Cake You'll Ever Make

This is literally the best chocolate cake recipe I have ever made. It's the perfect cake to make for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday...

Yes, boxed cake mixes are good, but there's nothing like a homemade death by chocolate cake. Nothing. Cut a big slice and pour yourself a cup of coffeetea or milk. Life is too short not to. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 to 35 minutes
Total Time: 40 to 45 minutes

Ingredients

Frosting:

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 9-inch cake pans.
  2. In a bowl, stir together dry cake ingredients. Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla and mix for 3 minutes with an electric mixer. Gently stir in boiling water. Pour evenly into the prepared pans.
  3. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. After 10 minutes remove from pans to cool completely.
  4. Cream butter until fluffy. Alternately stir in remaining frosting ingredients. Beat to a spreading consistency.
  5. Split the cake layers horizontally. Stack the layers on a serving plate, covering each layer with frosting. Frost the outside. Enjoy!
