Quick and Easy Chocolate Cake
2 cups granulated sugar
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup milk
1 cup boiling water
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Grease and flour cake pan. I used a 13x9x2. If you’d like a two layer round cake, use 2 9-inch round pans instead.
Combine the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
To the same bowl, add the eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla. Mix for 2 minutes on medium speed of mixer.
Add the boiling water and mix well. The batter will not be as firm as your typical cake batter. It will be rather runny.
Pour evenly into the prepared pan.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes, until the cake tests done with a toothpick and the edges are pulling away from the pan.
Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and place onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Frost with your favorite frosting.
