« Recipe: Chocolate Cake »

Chocolate Cake (Devil's Food Cake, to be more precise)

Yield: 9 inch layer cake; 10-12 servings

Ingredients

2 c sugar

1 3/4 c all purpose flour

3/4 c cocoa

1 1/2 t baking powder

1 1/2 t baking soda

1 t salt

2 large eggs

1 c milk

1/2 c vegetable oil

2 t vanilla extract

1 c brewed coffee

Preparation 

Preheat oven to 350 F

Sift sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a large mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl, combine the eggs, milk, vegetable oil, vanilla extract and coffee.  

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.  Beat on medium speed of mixer for approximately 2 minutes.  The batter will be very thin.

Divide batter between 2 greased and floured 9 inch layer pans. Bake for approximately 35 minutes, or until wooden tooth pick inserted into the layers comes our clean.

Cool on a baking rack for at least 10 minutes, before removing the cakes from the pan. When the layers are completely cool, ice with your favorite frosting.
