Moist Chocolate cake

This cake is super moist and very easy to make. Woman here is Saudi Arabia love to buy boxed cake mixes, this cake is just as easy if not easier and better in taste than any boxed chocolate cake mix. You can even pre mix all the ingredients, place the mix in a cute jar with a label and give to your friends as a gift or pre mix and keep in your pantry for those times when you're having guest coming over and very little time to bake. I'm telling you the ingredients and method are simple but the taste is far from that. This is probably one of the first cakes I baked for my husband when we first got married, thanks to the back label of my Hershey's cocoa powder. Tonight I simply covered the cake in ganache and attempted to decorate it with a cresent moon and star. (*....

2 cups sugar
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour two 9-inch round baking pans.
Stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; beat on medium speed of mixer 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin). Pour batter into prepared pans.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks. Cool completely.
