2 cups all purpose flour ▢2 cups sugar ▢¾ cup cocoa powder ▢2 teaspoons baking powder ▢2 teaspoons baking soda ▢1 teaspoon salt ▢1 cup milk ▢½ cup vegetable oil ▢2 eggs ▢1 tablespoon vanilla extract ▢1 cup boiling water Chocolate Frosting ▢½ cup butter, softened ▢½ cup cocoa powder ▢4 cups powdered sugar, sifted ▢1 teaspoon vanilla extract ▢1 pinch salt ▢6-8 tablespoons half and half


Step - 1

Turn the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Nonstick spray and line them with parchment paper. In a large mixing basin, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt with a whisk.  

Combine the oil, eggs, milk, and vanilla with a whisk until homogeneous. While mixing, incorporate the scalding water until smooth.  

Step - 2

Evenly distribute the batter between the two vessels. Bake for thirty to thirty-five minutes at 350°F, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clear.  

Step - 3

After ten minutes of cooling in the pans, invert them onto cooling stands. Completely cool.  

Step - 4

Prepare the frosting while the cake cools by combining all ingredients in a basin and beating until smooth; add enough half-and-half to achieve a spreadable consistency.  

Step - 5

One cake should be placed on a serving platter or cake stand. One-half cup of frosting should be spread on top. Mount the remaining cake on top. Completely frost the cake's sides and top with the remaining icing.  

Step - 6

Serve immediately, or allow to rest overnight covered.
