Birthday Series: The Best Chocolate Cake Recipe!


2 Cups Boiling Water
1 Cups Sugar
1 1/2 Cups Buttermilk
1 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Cup Vegetable Oil
2 Eggs
1 Tsp Salt
2 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Baking Powder
2 Cups Flour
3/4 Cups Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Boil the water and add the sugar. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside to cool. Once cool mix the sugar water, buttermilk, vanilla extract, oil, and eggs together. In a separate bowl mix the salt, baking soda, baking powder, flour, and cocoa powder. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet. (This is a very wet cake mixture) Pour into 2 9x9 pans or divide into cupcake tins. Bake for 22-25 minutes until done.

2 sticks of unsalted butter
6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

In a saucepan melt the butter, chocolate chips and cream. Once melted and smooth, add the powdered sugar slowly. Let icing sit (or refrigerate) until thick enough to frost the cake. This makes a very fudgy, delicious icing.
