Aunt Helen's Chocolate Cake

This cake recipe is from my Aunt Helen. She got it from her mother-in-law years ago. I make this and pair it with a "boiled frosting" recipe which I got from my sister-in-law, Patti. I am also sharing that recipe. This cake and Patti's Boiled Frosting are a match made in heaven. At school I made this cake for the Relay for Life auction and also many people at work ask me to make the cake for them or a family memeber. It is a pretty popular cake! Sure hope you try it and enjoy!
Just a quick note I use Pam for baking on the pan rather than greasing and flouring and the Pam for Baking works very well!

Serves:

about 10-15 depending on how large you slice!

Cook:

30 Min

Ingredients

2 c
sugar
2 c
flour
2 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
salt
1 c
cocoa powder
2 tsp
vanilla extract
2
eggs
1 c
vegetable oil
2 c
very hot water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix all of your dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
2
Add in the vanilla and the oil. Beat the eggs and add in. I always stir that much to blend before adding in the hot water.
3
Carefully add in the hot water a little at a time and mix it well. The batter is going to be pretty loose and that is okay.
4
Pour into greased and flour baking pan (13x9) and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Check center, insert a toothpick or a knife and when it is pulled from the center clean the cake is done. Let cool completely before frosting.
