You may not think you’re a cake person … but I guarantee you’ll rethink that after you try this chocolate cake recipe. It is SO easy, SO moist and just amazingly delicious.
I can’t take any personal credit for this recipe. It comes from the ‘Keeping Up Cookbook’ by Grace Ivory Rock and Amy Henriksen Fougler. I have searched everywhere for this cookbook and it seems to be out of print! I wish I could link you to it, because this cookbook and it’s predecessor, ‘Favorites Cookbook’, are amazing. I received them both as gifts and know they were once available for purchase at the Make A Wish Foundation in Murray, UT, but I don’t believe that’s the case anymore.
We stumbled on this recipe a few years ago, and it’s definitely our go-to. No other chocolate cake seems to compare! This cake has a very runny batter because you add 2 cups of boiling water to the batter. But, don’t be alarmed! That’s what makes it so moist and delicious once it’s baked.

We loved this so much that I’m requesting it for Mother’s Day. Perfect cake for a chocolate lover!
Do you reccomend using salted or unsalted butter in this Chocolate Cake recipe?
I typically use salted butter, but unsalted would work too. Hope you love the cake!
