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.

How to Make BEST EVER CHOCOLATE CAKE

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