2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Baking Cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 cup water
Chocolate Lover’s Frosting
PREHEAT oven to 350° F. Grease and flour two 9-inch-round baking pans or one 13 x 9-inch baking pan.
COMBINE flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Beat butter, sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture alternately with water. Spread into prepared pan(s).
BAKE for 25 to 35 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan(s) for 15 minutes; invert onto wire racks to cool completely.
To Frost, COMBINE 8 oz. semi sweet morsels and 1 cup heavy cream in a heat-safe bowl over a pot of simmering water. When morsels begin to turn shiny, stir constantly until melted. Once melted, immediately remove bowl with melted morsels from bottom pot. Pour over cake while still warm.
