STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 360F / 180C. Grase and flour two 9-in baking pans. Set aside. In the large bowl of a standing mixer, stir together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add eggs, milk, vegetable oil and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth about 3 minutes. Stir in boiling water. You can use rubber spatula to stir. Batter will be very runny. Pour batter evenly between the two pans and bake on middle rack of oven for about 30-35 minutes, until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean with just a few moist crumbs attached. Let it cool about 10 minutes before removing from pans. Than cool completely. In the meantime, prepare a chocolate buttercream frosting. Use a standing mixer to beat the butter until fluffy. Finely add in cocoa, powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth. Cut each cake horizontally. Smear evenly 2-3 heaped tbsp buttercream frosting over the first layer of cake, cover with second layer and buttercream frosting and continue that process with remaining layers of cake and buttercream frosting. Spread buttercream frosting evenly with a spatula all over the cake. Enjoy!
