Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350º F. Grease and lightly flour two 9-inch-round baking pans or one 13 x 9-inch baking pan.

Step 2

Combine flour, baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon salt in small bowl. Beat granulated sugar, 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in large mixer bowl. Add eggs; beat for 1 minute. Beat in melted chocolate. Beat flour mixture into creamed mixture alternately with 1 cup milk. Spoon and spread into prepared baking pan(s).

Step 3

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes (13 x 9- inch 30 to 32 minutes) or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for 20 minutes; invert round cakes onto wire rack(s) to cool completely.
