2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water
1. Preheat oven to 350*F. Grease and flour two nine inch round pans. (We have used one eleven inch round)
2. In a large bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the eggs, milk, oil, and mix for 2 minutes on medium speed. Stir in boiling water last. Batter will be thin. Pour evenly into prepared pans.
3. Bake 30-35 minutes, until the cake tests done with a toothpick (60 min. w/11 inch pan). Cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
