Perfect Chocolate Cake

I'm going Visiting Teaching this morning...and my visiting teach-ee is having a birthday.  I quickly whipped these up to take to her in celebration of her birthday.  I love this recipe.  It's EASY and SO GOOD and MOIST!  Don't be afraid.  Let go of the box mixes and try this.  I used a homemade vanilla frosting as well. It's a good combination.

2 c sugar
1 3/4 c flour
3/4 c cocoa powder
1 1/2 t bp
1 1/2 t bs
1 t salt
2 eggs
1 c milk
1/2 c oil
2 t vanilla extract
1 c boiling water

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease 2 9inch pans or line cupcake pans with paper.  Stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, bp, bs and salt in large bowl.  Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla.  Beat on medium speed of mixer for 2 minutes.  Stir in boiling water.  (batter will be thin)  Pour batter into pans.  Bake 30-35 minutes for cake, 15 or so for cupcakes.

Bon Bon

i do enjoy a box cake. I should try one from scratch.
Why are cupcakes better than cake? I love them.
