  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9 inch tube pan. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the 1 cup of evaporated milk and the 3/4 cup of cocoa. Heat until the cocoa is dissolved. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the eggs, melted butter, water, vanilla and the cocoa mixture, mix until well blended. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
  4. To make the chocolate icing, combine the remaining condensed milk, evaporated milk, cocoa and butter in a saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thick and paste-like. Spread over cooled cake.

Wow, this was actually really horrible. I made it while my baby was napping to try and satisfy a chocolate craving and I am so sad. It is not good at all. Practically no taste at all... Too bad....

I must say that I was disappointed in the end result. The cake, itself, turned out big and full. But it was not as sweet as I was expecting, partially due to the addition of the cocoa/evap milk ...

OK.. Ive made this again and obviously did something horribly wrong last time! This cake is great BUT how do you make the icing?? I've been stirring endlessly for too long and gave up on it... I...
