Grease two 9-inch round cake pans and preheat your oven to 350ºF.


Combine all of the ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and stir until well incorporated.


Divide the batter into the prepared cake pans and bake the cakes for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.


Let the cakes cool in the pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then carefully remove the cakes and set them back on the wire racks to finish cooling.


Put one of the cakes on a plate and spread about ¾ of one can of frosting over the top. Place the second cake on top and use the rest of the frosting to frost the sides and top of the cake.


Although it looks like your standard chocolate cake slice, once you grab a fork and dig in, you’ll get what all the hype is about.
