This cake is delicious in every way...moist, rich, dense, but not too much of each! The perfect balance of all! I topped mine with a Peanut Butter Chocolate Ganache...heavenly!!!
|One Bowl Chocolate Cake|
2 cups white sugar
1 & 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 & 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 & 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease and flour two 9" round pans or one 9x13" baking pan.
In a large mixing bowl, add all the dry ingredients and whisk to combine.
Then add in all wet ingredients except for the boiling water.
Blend on medium speed with a hand mixer for 2 minutes.
Then stir in the boiling water. Batter will be thin.
Pour evenly into pans and bake on center rack for 30-35 if using the round pans
or 40 minutes if using the 9x13" pan. But check for doneness since all oven times vary.
Cool completely then frost as desired.
