Mom's moist Chocolate cake

This is definitely one of my favorite chocolate cakes EVER. When I was a little girl I always thought it was too rich. But as I have gotten older it is definitely a fav.

2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
4 T cocoa
2 cups hot water
2 tsp baking powder
3 cups flour
2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 T vanilla

Add all dry ingredients except soda and baking powder. Mix in eggs, add hot water and vanilla. Add soda and baking powder and then add oil last. It makes a fairly runny batter. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. (I always use the pam/flour spray stuff not just oil in the pan)
Cool, Frost and enjoy!!

I store mine in the fridge after the initial night. We like it cold.
