One Bowl Chocolate Cake

By Brooke McLay |

Got a craving for chocolate? Hows abouts you treat yourself to a big old slice of homemade chocolate cake. This is my favorite recipe for a moist, tasty chocolate cake that mixes up in just one bowl. No muss, no fuss. Lots of perfectly chocolatey flavor. Delish!

One Bowl Chocolate 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

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9- inch round cake pans.

In a large bowl, stir the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt together. Add the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla, mix for 2 minutes on medium speed of mixer. Stir in the boiling water last. Pour into your prepared pans. 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. Drizzle icing over the top, if desired & decorate with fresh berries.

Vanilla Icing
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon melted butter
6-8 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Mix all ingredients together until a thin icing forms. Drizzle over warm cake.
