Easy Chocolate Cake

Beloved by kids and adults everywhere, rich, moist chocolate cake is as fun to make as it is to eat!

2 cup granulated sugar
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 cup reduced-fat milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup hot water or hot coffee

  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease two 9 inch baking pans with butter, and lightly dust the pans with flour. Set aside.
  2. In the mixing bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt with the wooden spoon until they’re well combined.
  3. Crack the eggs into the mixture and add the milk and oil. Beat on medium speed for one to two minutes until smooth.
  4. Add the vanilla to the chocolate batter and beat on slow speed for one minute.
  5. Pour the hot water into the mixture and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon.
  6. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared pans for 30 to 35 minutes until the center is slightly firm.
  7. Because baking times vary slightly depending on ovens and elevations, do the toothpick test: Insert a toothpick into the center of the cake; when it comes up clean, without any batter or crumbs sticking to it, the cake is done. If you don’t have a toothpick, use a fork or knife instead.
  8. Place the cake pans on a cooling rack and let them cool for 15 to 20 minutes.
  9. Invert the pans onto the rack and let the cake cool completely, about two hours.
  10. Put the layers on a cake stand or plate before frosting or serving. Enjoy!
