Scott loves his chocolate. Every year I try an new chocolate creation. This year because of other things going on I didn’t have time to be creative. So this is the cake I made. I use this recipe for all chocolate cakes. If you have problems finding the Special Dark Cocoa, try looking at Walmart.

- 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. Frost with “ESPECIALLY DARK” CHOCOLATE FROSTING. 10 to 12 servings.
