Chocolate Birthday Cake

Happy Birthday Mike!

This year I made a really delicious Birthday Cake for Mike.  He requested chocolate with chocolate frosting.  Here's the recipe I used:

Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Cake
2 cups sugar
1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp. vanilla 
1 cup boiling water


Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and cocoa powder two 9-inch round baking pans.
2. Stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; beat on medium speed of mixer 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin). Pour batter into prepared pans.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely.

I used a cream cheese frosting recipe like this one:Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

I halved the recipies to make a 1 layer cake and it was delicious!
