Easy Chocolate Cake

Diana Rattray
A very easy chocolate cake mixed up with cocoa, oil, and other ingredients.


  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup boiling water


Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Remove mixer; stir in boiling water by hand. Pour the thin batter into a greased and floured 13x9x2-inch baking pan or two greased and floured 9-inch layer cake pans or three greased and floured 8-inch layer cake pans. Bake at 350° for about 35 minutes for a rectangular cake or 30 to 35 minutes for layers. A wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center should come out clean. Cool for 10 minutes in pan on rack then remove from pan and cool completely.
Frost as desired.

Cake is shown with Creamy Butter Frosting

Amazingly easy & delicious, unbelievably easy!!, Member vhandayani

WOW! This was the only word that keep coming out from my mouth when I pulled this cake (I made about 24 medium cupcakes) out of the oven, couldn't wait to taste it and to witness whether this cake was raised properly including the center part, so I did. I am still eating them while writing this review. The texture & color are perfect, the choco taste just perfect, go along with frosting superbly.. I still can't believe it was THAT EASY!! Almost just like making cake from the box mix, you will be amazed too.. For you who are new at baking, behold, this recipe will give you result like a pro.. This is absolutely will be my go to choco cake recipe, bless you, whoever created this recipe.. :-)
