1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
¾ cups cocoa powder
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
½ cup extra virgin olive oil (or Queen Creek Chocolate Olive Oil)
1 cup whole milk
1 cup boiling water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a deep 9 or 10 inch round cake pan.
In a large mixing bowl, blend together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix in eggs, vanilla and olive oil. Add milk and beat on medium speed until well blended. Add boiling water and continue to beat at low speed. The mixture will be thin and runny.
Pour into prepared cake pan and bake for about 40 minutes or until toothpick comes up clean. Note: For layered cake, bake in two 9 inch rounds, and when cool, layer each with chocolate frosting.

Chocolate Frosting:

1 ½ cups butter, room temperature
3 cups powdered sugar
2 cups cocoa powder
6 tablespoons hot espresso or coffee, or 2 teaspoons instant espresso
6 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons vanilla


With an electric mixer (or food processor) beat together butter, powdered sugar and cocoa. Add hot coffee, milk and vanilla, blending to mix until smooth and creamy. If too thin, add more powdered sugar.
