1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda

Add the milk, melted chocolate and vanilla, and mix well. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and stir until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pans and bake for 25 to 35 minutes.
