Ingredients: For the Cake: 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 3/4 cups granulated sugar 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 2 large eggs 1 cup whole milk 1/2 cup vegetable oil 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1 cup boiling water For the Chocolate Frosting: 1 cup unsalted butter, softened 2 cups powdered sugar 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1/4 cup milk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract A pinch of salt Instructions: For the Cake: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Mix until well combined. Gradually add the boiling water to the batter, mixing continuously. The batter will be thin, but that’s okay. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared cake pans. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. For the Chocolate Frosting: In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened butter until creamy. Gradually add the powdered sugar and cocoa powder, mixing well after each addition. Add the milk, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Beat until the frosting is smooth and fluffy. Assembling the Cake: Once the cakes are completely cooled, place one layer on a serving plate. Spread a layer of chocolate frosting over the top of the first layer. Place the second cake layer on top and frost the top and sides of the entire cake. Optional: You can also add chocolate shavings, sprinkles, or chopped nuts on top for decoration. Slice and enjoy your Chocolate Heaven Cake! Feel free to get creative with additional ingredients or decorations to make it your own heavenly creation.
