Indulge in the rich and decadent flavor of this dark chocolate cake. Perfect for any special occasion or simply to satisfy your chocolate cravings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 cups (220g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups (300g) granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup (75g) unsweetened cocoa powder (preferably dark)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup (240ml) whole milk
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (240ml) boiling water

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round baking pans.
  2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add the eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Beat on medium speed for about 2 minutes.
  4. Stir in the boiling water until the batter is well combined. The batter will be thin, but that’s okay.
  5. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared pans.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Frost with your favorite chocolate frosting and enjoy!
