2 cups sugar
3/4 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup boiling water
1cup full fat (whole) milk
2 large eggs (whisked)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C)
Grease and flour one 9 x 13 pan or two 9 inch round pans.
Mix ingredients together in a large bowl. I did mine in the following order:
- boiling water
- mix all dry ingredients in a separate bowl (sifted flour and cocoa)
- add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients
- add vanilla
Mix well and then pour in pan(s).
* The batter should be thin.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Check with toothpick to ensure good timing.
Frost your cake as you desire. I tasted mine prior to frosting. After a few pieces as is, I decided not to frost it. It tasted nice without. Especially with a hot cup of coffee!!!
