For the Cake:

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

For the Chocolate Ganache (optional):

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces semi-sweet or dark chocolate, chopped


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Add the eggs, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Beat on medium speed with a mixer for about 2 minutes until well combined.
  4. Stir in the boiling water. The batter will be thin, but that's okay.
  5. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared cake pans.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.
  7. Remove the pans from the oven and allow the cakes to cool in the pans for about 10 minutes. Then, remove the cakes from the pans and transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. For the optional ganache: In a saucepan, heat the heavy cream over medium heat until it begins to simmer. Remove from heat and add the chopped chocolate. Let it sit for a minute, then stir until smooth. Allow the ganache to cool and thicken before using.
  9. Once the cakes are completely cool, you can frost them with the chocolate ganache or your favorite frosting.
  10. Serve and enjoy your homemade chocolate cake!

Feel free to get creative with the frosting – you can use buttercream, cream cheese frosting, or any other frosting you prefer.

You can also add chocolate chips, sprinkles, or fresh berries as decoration. Enjoy your delicious homemade chocolate cake!
