This cake from Dawn is so nice and moist it's sure to become your go-to cake recipe.


  • 2 Cups flour
  • 1/2 Cup COCOA POWDER
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
  • 1 stick (1/2 Cup) butter
  • 2 Cups sugar
  • 2 Cups boiling water
  • 2 eggs

Buttercream Frosting:

  • 1 lb. powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1/3-1/2 Cup soft butter
  • 1/8 tsp. salt (eliminate if using salted butter)
  • 2 tsp. PURE VANILLA EXTRACT
  • 3-5 TB. milk
       

Preheat the oven to 350°. Sift together the flour, COCOA, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, cream together the VANILLA, butter and sugar. Add the boiling water, blend, then add the eggs and mix until well blended. Gradually add the dry ingredients and mix well. Pour into an ungreased 9x13 pan and bake for 30 minutes at 350°. Either sprinkle with cake decorating sprinkles for a lower sugar version before baking, or when cool frost with Buttercream Frosting.

Frosting
Beat together the sifted powdered sugar, butter, salt and VANILLA. Add enough milk to get the frosting to a good spreading consistency. For chocolate frosting, add 1/2 Cup COCOA POWDER.
