– 2 cups all-purpose flour
– 2 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, at room temperature
– 1 cup whole milk
– 1/2 cup vegetable oil
– 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
– 1 cup boiling water


1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour three 9-inch round cake pans, or line them with parchment paper for easy removal.

2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. This ensures that there are no lumps and the dry ingredients are well combined.

3. Add the eggs, milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat on medium speed for about 2 minutes until the batter is smooth and well combined.

4. Carefully stir in the boiling water to the batter. The batter will be thin, but this is what will give the cake its moist and tender texture.

5. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans. Tap the pans gently on the counter to remove any air bubbles.

6. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.

7. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

8. Once the cakes are completely cooled, you can frost them with your favorite chocolate frosting or ganache. Let your creativity run wild with decorations, or simply enjoy the cake as is.
