Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and dust with cocoa two 9" layer cake pans. Set aside.
  2. In large bowl, combine sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir with wire whisk until blended.
  3. Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla and beat well with wire whisk or mixer until combined, about 2 minutes. While beating, heat water in microwave oven to boiling. Stir boiling water into cake batter. Pour the thin batter into the two prepared cake pans.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until cake pulls away from sides of pan, top springs back when lightly touched, and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes, then remove from pans and cool completely on wire racks. Fill and frost.
