This seriously is the best chocolate cake recipe ever. Found on http://www.addapinch.com by my best friend Dawn and given the stamp of approval by my son. My daughter was the first to make this cake by herself after she told me she wants to be a cake baker. I’ve made it several times since.

Ingredients;
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp espresso powder
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water

Directions;
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray two 9 inch cake pans with cooking spray and lightly flour. Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl, whisk together. Add milk, oil, eggs, and vanilla on medium speed, add water until air is added to batter. Place batter in cake pans and cook for 30-35 minutes
Allow to cool for 10 minutes and then remove from cake pans, cool completely before frosting.

Frosting;
Ingredients;
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
1 cup unsweetened cocoa
5 cups confectioners sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp espresso powder

Directions;
Cream together butter and cocoa powder. Add sugar and milk this way; 1 cup sugar and 1 TBS milk at a time, mix on high. Add vanilla and espresso powder. Add more milk if dry, add sugar if too wet.
