BEST EVER CHOCOLATE CAKE

Ann Conetta Miller

My cousin gave me this recipe in 1963, shortly after I got married. I've made it many times and family and friends always rave about it. The first time I made it, I was sure I did something wrong because the batter was very watery. I baked it and it was just wonderful. So don't panic if you batter is different than a regular cake mix.

30 Min

Ingredients

2 c
all purpose flour
2 c
sugar
2 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
salt
3/4 c
hershey's baking cocoa
1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 c
vegetable oil
1 c
milk
1 c
strong coffee (cooled) water may be substituted
2
eggs
1 tsp
vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Sift first 6 ingredients together. Set aside
2
Put last 5 ingredients in the large bowl of an electric mixer. Beat on low until combined.
3
Add dry ingredients slowly and beat on low until combined. Then beat on medium/high for 3 minutes.
4
Spray 2 9-inch round cake pans with non-stick spray. Pour batter evenly between them.
5
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Don't overbake. Cool on wire racks.

Frost with icing of your choice. Cream cheese is always good - or - chocolate is even better for all the chocoholics out there.
