Cook Time: 35 minutes


  1. In a large bowl, stir together the dry ingredients. Add the remaining ingredients and mix with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in the boiling water. (The batter will be thin.) Pour evenly into prepared pans. Bake at 350 F for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack, then remove from pans and allow to cool completely before frosting.
