Extreme Chocolate Cake Recipe Just May Be the Best Cake You'll Ever Make

This is literally the best chocolate cake recipe I have ever made. Ever. It's the perfect dessert to make for special occasions (Father's Day is Sunday, June 18!), or on any old Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday ... you get the idea. There's nothing like a homemade "death by chocolate" cake, especially this one. Literally nothing.

To make this extreme chocolate cake recipe you'll need granulated sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt, eggs, milk, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, butter and powdered sugar. The cake batter is baked in two 9-inch round cake pans. After the cakes cool, frost with the chocolate frosting made with butter, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, milk and vanilla. Delicious!

Cut a big slice of this moist chocolate cake and pour yourself a cup of coffee, tea or milk. Life is too short not to enjoy this extreme chocolate cake.
