Yummy Chocolate Cake

From Can of Hershey's Cocoa

2 c sugar
1 3/4 c flour
3/4 c cocoa
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
1 c boling water

preheat oven t 350. Grease and flour two 9 in round baking pans. Stir sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in large bowl. Add eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla and beat on medium speed. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin). Pour batter into pans and bake for 30-35 minutes.

We then made the frosting on the back of the can as well - but this time we used the 'Special Dark' cocoa.

1/2 c butter
2/3 c Special Dark cocoa
3 c powdered sugar
1/3 c milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Melt butter and stir in cocoa. Alternately add powered sugar and milk, beating to spreading consistency. Add small amount of additional milk if needed. Stir in vanilla.


Moist and delicious.
