  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add the eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes until well combined.
  4. Stir in the boiling water until the batter is smooth. The batter will be thin, but that’s normal.
  5. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared cake pans.

  7. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Once the cakes are completely cooled, you can frost them with your favorite frosting or serve them as is. Enjoy your delicious chocolate cake!
