Chocolate Layered Cake with Pomegranats

It was my Friend Aditi’s Birthday this past week. I made the cake for her big bash on Saturday. It turned out well (aka I got a lot of compliments from the party goers) so I thought I would share it here.

The Chocolate cake recipe is one I got from a lady I used to work for. The first time I made it I was so sure I was going to end up with a soggy tastless cake cause the recipe seemed very strange and the batter was sooooooo runny. But it is seriously a fool proof cake that tasts amazing everytime.

The Best Chocolate Cake Ever

2 cups Sugar
2 2/3 cups Flour
2/3 cup Coco powder
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp Baking Soda
2/3 cup Oil
2 Eggs
2 tsp Vanilla
2 cups boiling water

Mix the dry ingredients together. Beat in all wet ingredients except the water. Add the boiling water while mixing. Beat well for 2 minutes. Pour into a well greased 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 F for 45 min or until a tooth pick comes out clean

Chocolate Frosting

1/3 cup butter (at room temperature)
1 Egg
2 cups Icing sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
2 squares of melted bitter sweet chocolate

Cream the butter, beat in egg. Add Icing sugar gradually till light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and chocolate. Spread over cooled chocolate cake.

After I made the cake I remembered that I don’t have a nice plate that is big enough for a 9×13 cake so I ended up cutting my cake in two and putting it on two plates. Here it is
