“Another from the My Great Recipes collection. I don't know why it calls for the odd amount of sugar... I measure 1 cup and then remove 2 Tbsp to make 7/8 cup. This is a quick and easy cake and the icing makes the cake!”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 9" cake pans and set aside.
  2. To make the cake, combine the first 11 ingredients (sugar through the first 1 tsp vanilla) into a mixing bowl.Beat at medium speed for 1 1/2 minutes.
  3. Pour into prepared cake pans and bake for 25 minutes. Cool cakes in pan for 5 minutes, then turn onto a rack to cool completely before frosting.
  4. FOR FROSTING: In saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, chocolate, and boiling water. Cook, stirring until mixture thickens. Turn off the heat. Stir in butter and vanilla. Cool slightly before frosting cake. ( I usually leave the sides unfrosted).
