flour and butter for coating and dusting the baking pans
3 cups flour
3 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups unsweeted cocoa powder
1 tbsp baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups butter milk
1 1/2 cups warm water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Butter three 9-inch cake rounds. Dust with flour and tap out the excess
Mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a stand mixer using a low speed until combined.
Add eggs, buttermilk, warm water, oil, and vanilla. Beat on a medium speed until smooth. This should take just a couple of minutes
Divide batter among the three pans. I found that it took just over 3 cups of the batter to divide it evenly.
Bake for 30-35 minutes until the cake meets the toothpick test (stick a toothpick in and it comes out clean).
Cool on wire racks for 15 minutes and then turn out the cakes onto the racks and allow to cool completely.
Frost with your favorite frosting and enjoy!
Ok if your going to make this It makes a lot of batter apparently I would not use a food processor I did and it made a huge mess and not all the ingredients fit in there made me which I had a beater or stand mixer
