HOMEMADE Chocolate Cake and frosting

Chocolate One – Bowl Cake
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

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 9 inch round pans or 1 - 9 x 13 pan.
In a large bowl, combine sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the center and add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Beat for 2 minutes at medium speed. Stir in boiling water. When you’re done mixing, don’t be scared, it’s kind of watery…
Pour into two 9 inch pans. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 to 35 minutes (or 50 minutes in 9X13 pan) or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then turn out onto a wire rack and continue cooling.

Chocolate Frosting
1/4 cup butter (softened but NOT melted)
2 cups confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons milk

Directions
Mix together all ingredients. May need to add more milk (slowly) until frosting reaches a spreadable consistency!
