Mom's Chocolate Decadent Cake

So today I tried out this recipe for Mom's Chocolate Decadent Cake and it turned out really well! I found it on JustAPinch Recipe Club and I'm glad I did. My one complaint is that, while the recipe tells you to cook the cake in a 9x13 pan, mine came out uncooked in the center. So be sure to make adjustments if you're planning on trying this cake out. Which would be a smart idea! Here's the recipe:

Mom’s Chocolate Decadent Cake


2 stk unsalted butter

6 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 c water
2 c sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 c all purpose flour
1/2 c milk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 stk unsalted butter

6 Tbsp powdered cocoa
6 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp hot water
1 tsp vanilla
1 lb confectioners sugar, sifted



For Cake: Melt butter in 2 quart or larger saucepan; add cocoa and water and bring to a boil.
Remove from heat and stir in sugar
Add salt, soda and flour, and stir well.
Blend in eggs, milk, and vanilla.
Bake in a 9x13, greased cake pan in 400 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes
For Frosting:
Melt butter in a medium saucepan; add cocoa and milk and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add water, vanilla, and sifted confectioner sugar, and mix well. This frosting is not stiff. Frost cake while cake is hot and frosting is still warm. Let cool before cutting.
