To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan.
In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup butter until light and fluffy. Beat in 2 eggs, one at a time. Then, add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and mix until combined.
Alternate adding the dry ingredients and 1 cup of milk to the creamed mixture. Start and end with the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Once the cake is done baking, remove it from the oven and let cool for about 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
When the cake is cooled, make the frosting. In a medium bowl, cream together 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, and 2 cups confectioners’ sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1-2 tablespoons of milk.
Spread the frosting over the cooled cake and enjoy!
