Ingredients

CAKE INGREDIENTS

3 c
all purpose flour
2 c
sugar
6 Tbsp
cocoa powder
2 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
salt
2 c
water
2/3 c
oil
2 tsp
white vinegar
2 tsp
vanilla extract

FLUFFY CHOCOLATE FROSTING

1 c
milk
1 box
3.9 oz. instant chocolate pudding or vanilla if you wish
1
8oz. cool whip (thawed)

Step-By-Step

1In mixing bowl, combine Flour, Sugar, Cocoa, Baking soda, and Salt.
2Add the water, oil, vinegar, and vanilla.
3Beat on low for 1 minute. Then Beat on medium for 1 minute.
4Pour into a greased 13X9X2 in. baking pan. (I use a bundt pan.) Bake at 350 degrees 40-45 min. or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
5For frosting, in mixing bowl, beat milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes with wire wisk. Then gently stir in whipped topping. Spread over cake. Cake must be refridgerated once frosting is spread on.
6I get creative with this cake too...In the picture displayed I used hersheys syrup to decorate it...or before frosting it I cut the cake in half and put a layer of frosting in the middle of cake....another time I poked holes in the cake before frosting and pour hersheys syrup over the cake then continued to frost. I even used a strawberry pudding in the frosting last time to that was really good as well.
