Easy Chocolate Cake Recipe

INGREDIENTS:
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 Tbsp. oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1-1/2 tsp. baking soda

  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
BAKING INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large heavy saucepan, combine cocoa powder, butter, oil, and 1 cup milk. Place over medium heat and cook until butter melts and mixture comes to a boil. As soon as the mixture boils, remove it from the heat and beat with a wire whisk.
  2. Add flour, sugars, salt, and baking soda. Beat well (batter will be thick at this point). Then add buttermilk, eggs, and 1-1/2 tsp. vanilla and beat again until batter is smooth and shiny.
  3. Spray 13×9″ pan with flour based cooking spray. Pour batter (batter will be thin) into prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-35 minutes, until cake has risen and edges begin to pull away from sides of pan. Toothpick inserted in center will come out clean.
  4. Let cake cool for 30 minutes.
  5. PREPARE THE FROSTING:

    In a heavy saucepan, combine 1/3 cup cocoa with 1/3 cup butter. Place over low heat and cook until butter melts and mixture is smooth, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and add 1/2 cup milk, powdered sugar, and 1 tsp. vanilla and beat until smooth. Immediately pour over cake. Frosting should level itself, but you may need to even it off with a knife. Let cool completely, then cut into squares.
