One Bowl Chocolate Cake

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

For icing: 
1/2 cup powder sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2-3 tablespoons milk
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and cocoa powder two nine inch round pans OR one bunt pan.

In a large bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla, mix for 2 minutes on medium speed of mixer. Stir in the boiling water last. Batter will be thin. Pour evenly into the prepared pans or bunt pan.

(As easy as 1,2,3!)
Bake 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cake tests done with a toothpick. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

While cake is baking, mix up your icing. Whisk together powder sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder and milk. It's up to you how much milk to use. More milk will give you a thinner glaze as less will leave you with something a little thicker.

Pour icing over cake (or cakes) letting it run down the sides. Sprinkle with mini chocolate chips and you've got a fuss free, delicious chocolate cake!

Serve with a BIG glass of milk and try not to eat the entire thing. ;)

(Can you really resist this?)

P.S. I know this sounds weird, but this cake tastes even better the next day and day after that!!

Happy cake eating to you!
