  • 1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda


  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup hot water


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Add the eggs, buttermilk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients.
  4. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes, until well combined.
  5. Stir in the hot water until the batter is smooth. The batter will be thin, but that’s okay.
  6. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.
  8. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then remove them from the pans and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • For an extra boost of chocolate flavor, add a handful of chocolate chips to the batter before baking.
  • This cake can be made ahead of time and stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or frozen for longer storage.



Q: Can I use regular milk instead of buttermilk?

A: Yes, you can substitute regular milk for buttermilk in this recipe, but the cake may be slightly less moist. Alternatively, you can make a buttermilk substitute by adding 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup of milk and letting it sit for 5 minutes before using.

Q: Can I use a different size of cake pan?

A: Yes, you can use different sizes of cake pans, but adjust the baking time accordingly. Thinner cakes may bake faster, while thicker cakes may take longer.
