My SO and i had lunch in a restaurant in Vancouver, BC and we had the most delectable, moist chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting. I tried for some time to duplicate the recipe and finally found this one from a blogger named Kaye. I have made it on several occasions and most everyone ends up having 2 pieces!!

Cook:

35 Min

Ingredients

2 c
white sugar
1 3/4 c
all purpose flour
3/4 c
unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp
baking powder
1 1/2 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
salt
2
eggs
1 c
milk
1/2 c
vegetable oil
2 tsp
vanilla extract
2 pkg
cream cheese softened
2 c
confectioners' sugar
1/2 c
butter, softened
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp
instant coffee granules - 1 cup boiling water (**with 1 and 1/2 teaspoons instant coffee granules–this was my change because i remember reading somewhere that coffee complements/brings out the flavor of chocolate–and it sure did)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Makes two 9 inch round cakes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9 inch round cake pans (first rub with butter, then cover with flour, dumping out excess).
2
In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add in the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Mix with a hand mixer for 3 minutes. Stir in the boiling coffee mixture by hand. The mixture will be VERY thin. Do not despair. Pour evenly into the two pans.
3
Bake for 30-35 minutes until toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes in pan. Then remove from pan to cool completely. Once the cake is cooled, frost, cut and enjoy!
4
Frosting

Mix the cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar together with a mixer until smooth for the icing.
This should ice the entire cake.
