Directions

  • 1Heat oven to 350°F.
  • 2Grease and flour two 9 inch round baking pans or one 13x9 inch pan.
  • 3In large mixer bowl, stir together dry ingredients.
  • 4Add eggs, milk, oil, and vanilla; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  • 5Stir in boiling water by hand (batter will be thin). NOTE: I have tried it with ½ cup, 2/3 cup and ¾ cup boiling water and we prefer it with less than 1 cup water. I usually use between 2/3 & ¾ cups. The cake is still very moist but it doesn't seem to "fall" as much as it cools. This might have to do with our high humidity or brand of flour or other factors so I don't know if it will work for everyone.
  • 6Pour into prepared pan.
  • 7Bake 30 to 35 minutes for round 9-inch pans, 35 to 40 minutes for rectangular pan or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. (Do not use 8-inch pans or the batter will overflow.).
  • 8Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to wire racks.
