Chocolate Cake

Stephen's birthday. He wanted a Chocobo on his cake, so he looked up this picture. He drew it out on the cake with a tooth pick and I went over it with the frosting. Didn't he do such a good job?!

Chocolate Man of the House Cake
2 1/3 c. flour
1 TB baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. oil
2 eggs
1 c. milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c. high quality unsweetened baking cocoa

Mix everything thoroughly, pour into a 9" x 13" baking dish, greased. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

I'll be honest, I haven't perfected this chocolate cake yet. It's good- it's just not the chocolate taste that I want. I've tried sweeten cocoa and unsweetened, and it does taste better with the unsweetened. But I would like it more chocolate. A friend of mine suggested a package of chocolate pudding, and I probably will try that.
