1. Preheat oven to a medium temperature.                                                               

2. Min a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar.                                                                              

3. Beat eggs in a small bowl (if you have very large eggs, you only need 2). Add eggs, vanilla and milk to the sugar mixture and blend well.                                                                     

4. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ones - mix well.                                                                     

5. Grease a baking pan (a 9"x13" rectangle or 8" round pan will work well). Pour batter into the pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until cooked through. To test the cake, poke a clean knife into the center - if the knife comes out clean, the cake is done.                                                                          

6. Allow cake to cool before removing it from the pan.                            


Notes: If you want to frost the cake, allow it to cool completely or the frosting will slide off. The cake is very yummy with Cream Cheese Coconut Frosting*. Also, you may find that the cheapest baking cocoa available in Romania has little flavor. If you spring for the more expensive imported German cocoa you will be rewarded with a more chocolaty cake.


Variations: This cake is already rich, but for an even richer cake, use milk or sour milk instead of water.


Substitutions: 3 Small eggs/2 Large eggs.
