This is the most decadent and moist cake you will ever try. Each bite is so rich and scrumptious that to even try to add any sort of topping would me an insult. When making this cake it is very important to follow the directions exactly. Trust me when I say that you will think its rather thin and has to much water in it but that is the secret to this amazing cake. Also I added a pan of water on the bottom rack as always when baking for extra moisture.
2 cups granulated 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 large eggs
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C). Grease and flour a 10-inch bundt or tube pan.
2. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl of an electric mixer. Add the liquid ingredients (except for the boiling water), and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
3. Stir in boiling water. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake in preheated oven for 50-55 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in cake comes out clean. Remove cake from oven and let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then invert cake onto wire rack and let cool completely.
