Chocolate Cake

2 c. sugar
1 c. cake flour
1 c. all purpose flour
3/4 c. cocoa
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt

2 eggs
1 c. half-an-half
1 stick butter melted
1 Tbsp vanilla extract

1 c. boiling water

Combine all of the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the eggs, half-an-half, butter, and vanilla and then mix to combine everything. Do not start mixing until all the wet ingredients are in the bowl. 

Slowly drizzle in the boiling water and mix until combines.

Pour batter (it will be thin) into 2 greased 9-in cake pans and bake in a preheated oven at 350 for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. 

Cook on a wire rack. 

Frost as desired. I like white chocolate cream cheese frosting.
