    CandyTX's Note:

    I'm not sure where this came from, but this is Tom's favorite chocolate cake. Be warned, it's chocolate-chocolate... :-) I make it once per year, on his birthday.

    Cake Ingredients

    Frosting Ingredients


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 9 inch cake pans. This cake is known for sticking, you may want to cut out parchment circles to fit your pan, place in bottom of pan. If you use cocoa powder instead of flour, you won't get that white residue.
    2. 2
      Use the first set of ingredients to make the cake. In a medium bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla, mix for 3 minutes with an electric mixer. Stir in the boiling water by hand. Pour evenly into the two prepared pans (note that the batter will be thin, it's supposed to be - promise!).
    3. 3
      Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to cool completely. The times are approximate, it can take longer depending on the weather and your oven.
    4. 4
      To make the frosting, use the second set of ingredients. Cream butter until light and fluffy. Stir in the cocoa and confectioners' sugar alternately with the milk and vanilla. Beat to a spreading consistency.
    5. 5
      Split the layers of cooled cake horizontally, cover the top of each layer with frosting, then stack them onto a serving plate. Frost the outside of the cake.
    6. 6
      NOTE: For a REALLY rich cake, use Dutch Processed cocoa. Seriously, I would almost insist that you do. It really does make it SO yummy.

      Extremely good!! I was craving chocolate and boy did this ever hit the spot. I made half the recipe and it turned out great. I was slightly concerned when pouring the batter into the pans because it had such a thin consistency, but they cooked up just fine. Thank you Tom&Candy for such a great cake recipe!

      The thing you need to know about this cake is the fudgey-ness of it all-- So many times a recipe will promise fudgey, but not deliver-- this is AMAZING! I even tried to ruin it by using grapeseed oil-- it's all I had--- and I was too cheap to go the expensive grocery store near by to buy a more suitable oil. However, my choice of oil didn't seem to matter, as it turned out to be one of the best cakes I have ever made and the fam seemed to agree! Thanks Tom&Candy, this one goes in my "Best of Zaar so far" cookbook. KC Shell
