Chocolate Layer Cake
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder
- 2 Tbsp. Clabber Girl Cornstarch
- 2 Tsp. Clabber Girl Baking Powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 4 large eggs
- 3/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.; grease and flour two 8-inch round cake pans.
In a large bowl stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl combine eggs, oil, vanilla and water. Add to dry ingredients and mix for 2 minutes at medium speed, stopping once or twice to scrape the bowl.
Pour batter evenly into prepared baking pans and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool cakes in pans for 15 minutes, then turn out and cool completely on a rack.
