I like to make this cake as a great after school treat. I bake it in a decorative bundt type pan and dust with powder sugar. So simple and satisfying with a steaming cup of hot chocolate.
2 Cups sugar
1 3/4 Cup flour
3/4 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp each of baking powder and baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 Cup milk
1/2 Cup vegetable oil
2 tsp. vanilla
1 Cup boiling water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour bundt type pan or 2, 9″ rounds. In a large bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, soda and salt. Add the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla and mix for 2 minutes on medium speed. Stir in the boiling water last. Batter will be thin. Pour into prepared pan and bake 30-35 min. or until cake tests done with toothpick. Cool approx. 10 minutes then invert onto a wire rack to cool completely.
