Thanks to Sharla for adding this recipe.

This recipe is quick, easy and tastes fantastic! I never buy cake mixes anymore! I actually got this recipe from my mother-in-law! It makes great cupcakes too!



Chocolate Cake
Ingredients:
 • 2 cups flour
 • 1 1/2 cup white sugar
 • 5 tbsp cocoa
 • 1 tsp baking soda
 • 1/2 tsp salt
 • 2 eggs
 • 3/4 cup oil
 • 1 cup warm water
 • 1 tsp vanilla
Icing:
 • 1/4 cup butter
 • icing sugar
 • warm water
 • 1 tsp vanilla
Directions:
 1.  Beat ingredients together.
 2.  Flour or spray bottom of the pan (I use
     a 9x11 cake pan)if you need to.
 3.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 min.
 4.  I also make cupcakes (makes around 2 dozen) with this recipe.
 5.  Wait for the cake to cool and make icing. If I add a cup or more of icing sugar I add a bit of warm
     water till the icing is smooth.
 6.  Spread on cake.
