The Most Amazing Chocolate Cake (thestayathomechef)

3 c flour
3 c sugar
1 1/2 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1 T baking soda
1 1/2 t baking powder
1 1/2 t salt
4 large eggs
1 1/2 c buttermilk
1 1/2 c warm water
1/2 c vegetable oil
2 t vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter 3 9″ cake rounds. Dust with flour and tap out the excess. Mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a stand mixer using a low speed until combined. Add eggs, buttermilk, warm water, oil and vanilla. Beat on a medium speed until smooth. This should take just a couple of min. Divide batter among the 3 pans. Bake for 30 – 35 min until the cake meets the toothpick test (stick a toothpick in and it comes out clean). Cool on wire racks for 15 min and then turn out the cakes onto the racks and allow to cool completely. Frost with your favorite frosting and enjoy! Note: The better quality cocoa powder you use the better the cake will taste. Yield: 3 9″ rounds.
