The first step is to gather the ingredients. For this recipe, you will need the following:

  • 1 3/4 cups/225 grams all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup water (boiling)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Take two pieces of nine-inch cake pans. Butter and flour each pan. You may also want to line the bottom with a round sheet of parchment paper. This ensures that your cake won’t stick to the inner surface of the pan and will, therefore, be easier to take out.

Take a bowl and mix all of your dry ingredients. This includes flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. Take a whisk and make sure that everything is properly blended together.

Take another bowl for the wet ingredients. Mix the eggs, milk, vanilla, and oil. Use a whisk to mix everything properly together. Take the cup of boiling water and then slowly whisk that into the mixture. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix everything together. This is your cake batter.

Pour the batter into the cake pans and bake them for thirty minutes. You can do the toothpick test around the 27th minute. This test involves sticking a toothpick into the cake. If it goes out smoothly and without any batter attached to it, then the cake is done.

Remove the cake layers from the pans and then allow them to cool. Use your favorite chocolate frosting to add some filling in between the layers. Generously frost all of the exteriors of the cake and then you are done! This is simple yet delicious.
