BUFFALO-GIRL’S BEST CHOCOLATE CAKE
If you love chocolate and you love cake, you’ll love this recipe. Dark, dense, moist and lick-your-plate-delicious (if plate licking is allowed in your house). This one’s a keeper for the recipe box.

12 – oz. semi-sweet chocolate
6 – tablespoons cocoa powder

5 – eggs

¾ – cup + 2 tablespoons flour
¾ – teaspoon baking powder
¾ – teaspoon baking soda
½ – teaspoon salt
¼ – cup vegetable oil

Butter
Wax paper

Preparation:

1 – Preheat oven to 350°. Place a rack in the middle of the oven and one on the bottom. Place a pan of water on the lowest rack.
2 – In a saucepan over low heat, add the first seven ingredients and allow them to melt, stirring occasionally.
3 – Transfer melted ingredients to a mixing bowl. On medium speed, add rum, vanilla and the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each before adding the other.
4 – Add the remaining ingredients in the order listed, mixing well to ensure all ingredients are incorporated, stopping and scraping the bottom of the bowl a couple of times.
5 – Butter two 8” round cake pans with butter and line the bottom with a circle of wax paper. Buttering the top of the wax paper too.
6 – Divide batter into cake pans. Tap the pan bottom on the counter top a few times to remove any air bubbles. Place the pans in the oven and bake for about 35 minutes.
7 – Remove cakes from the oven and run a knife around the edge of the cake. Invert onto racks that are lined with a piece of wax paper, tapping the bottom of the pan to release cakes. Allow the cakes to completely cool.
