You are about to learn the ingredients to the MOST DELICIOUS CHOCOLATE CAKE you've ever tasted and the BEST CHOCOLATE ICING in the world!

(tip: click on YOUTUBE logo in the lower right hand corner to watch it bigger!)

Detailed Recipe and Ingredients below....
WORLD'S BEST (or at least Kandee's best) CHOCOLATE CAKE RECIPE

What you need:
2 Cups Boiling Water
2 Cups Sugar
1 1/2 Cup Buttermilk
1 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 Cup Canola or Safflower Oil
2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Salt
2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
2 Cups Flour
3/4 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
2 9" inch round cake pans

Crank your oven up to 300ยบ degrees.
Butter and Flour your cake pans.
Pour Boiling water into bowl. Add Sugar to boiling water and stir until it dissolves and looks like "caramel water". Let cool for 10 minutes or so.
Add Buttermilk to cooled "sugar water". Also add vanilla and oil.
Whisk 2 eggs in a separate bowl. Then add to the rest of the mixture.
Add salt and baking soda and flour.
Mix until smooth- might be slightly watery and you'll think you messed up, but it comes out great!

Fill each cake pan about half full. And place in oven to back for 20-22 minutes.

Now time for...

2 Sticks of Butter (or 1 cup of butter)
6 oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
2 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar

What you do:
In a sauce pan, put the butter and chocolate chips and turn to medium heat until everything melts. Pour in the Heaving Whipping Cream and stir til smooth. Remove from heat and mix in powder sugar. Whip until smooth and fudgy.

And then get ready to send your taste buds into heavenly orbit. And again I shall warn you- this cake is highly addictive! ha ha ha

Paolina, if you add a little vinegar to regular cow's milk it will sour a bit and you can use that instead of buttermilk.

I made it today... Still have to put the frosting on. The time was different because I live in LA and kandee lives up in tahoe.
The frosting needs to cool so it'll be think I freaked at first.

1cup of butter milk = 1tbsp of lemon juice plus enough milk to make 1cup. Let stand 5 min before using. Or you can use 1 cup of plain yogurt

the first time i made it it came out fabulous!
but the past 3 times that i have made it comes out like jello like or flan like i dont know why! grrrr!! just finished making it again and once again a fail!

Take heavy cream and put it in a food processor until it separates. The liquid is buttermilk the solid is butter milk. I used this for the recipe and now I have two cakes and delicious homemade butter

Everyone please be aware- this recipe will NOT work if you live in a high altitude- Kandee lives in California and therefore this is a low altitude recipe. If you try to bake this in a high altitude, it will turn out like jello mush.

Remember to add the cocoa powder, the directions forgot to mention it, and also I ended up baking this cake at 300 degrees F for 40 minutes
