How to Make Best-Ever Chocolate Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. In mixing bowl, combine Flour, Sugar, Cocoa, Baking soda, and Salt.
  2. Add the water, oil, vinegar, and vanilla.
  3. Beat on low for 1 minute. Then Beat on medium for 1 minute.
  4. Pour 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.
  5. For 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.
  6. I 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.
