First off, there is nothing wrong with cake mixes, I use them all the time, but this recipe has become such a go-to for me when I want a chocolate cake. The time it takes for my oven to heat up, I have the batter made and divided up into the pans. Also this goes together so quickly. I still use cake mixes, jacked up a bit, but for chocolate cakes I no longer do, as this recipe goes together just as easily as a mix.
Pre-heat your oven to 350°F and make sure your rack is in the middle of your oven.
In the bowl of the stand mixer measure out your cocoa powder, flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Give this a whisk to combine everything and make sure everything is distributed evenly.
