Extreme Chocolate Cake: It May Be the Best Chocolate Recipe You'll Ever Make!

This is literally the best chocolate cake recipe I have ever made. 

You'll need:

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water

Frosting:

  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 5 1/3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

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 30-35 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!
