Judy's Birthday Cake

Judy, a dear friend, recently celebrated a birthday. Several friends gathered for supper to help her celebrate. Another friend, Lynn, made this very yummy chocolate cake!

Judy's Birthday Cake
2 cups sugar
1 and 3/4 cup all-purpose flour*
3/4 cup cocoa
1 and 1/2 t. baking powder
1 and 1/2 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
2 t. vanilla
1 cup boiling water

Heat oven to 350. Grease and flour 3 cake pans.
Combine dry ingredients in a large mixer bowl. Combine wet ingredients. Add wet to dry ingredients and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water. Pour into cake pans and bake for 28 minutes. Let cool and frost.

1/2 cup butter, melted
2/3 cup cocoa
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup milk
1 t. vanilla

Stir cocoa into melted butter. Alternately add sugar and milk. Beat on medium to desired consistency. Stir in vanilla.

*I always use unbleached flour because it is more healthy. I know regular all-purpose flour would result in a lighter cake.
