Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease two 8-inch round cake pans and set them aside.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until there are no visible clumps.
Add the eggs, 1 cup of the milk, the oil, and 1 1/2 teaspoons of the vanilla.
Beat the mixture with a mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes.
Stir in the boiling water.
Spoon the batter evenly into the cake pans.
Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 35-38 minutes for 35 to 38 minutes.
Remove the cakes from the oven and let cool in the pans for 5 minutes.
Transfer the cakes from the pans and let cool on a rack.
In a medium mixing bowl, beat the butter and the 1 1/2 teaspoons of the vanilla until smooth and creamy.
Add the cocoa powder and beat until combined.
Gradually add the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time.
Slowly beat in the 1/4 cup of the milk.
Beat in additional milk if needed, to obtain the desired consistency.
Frost the cakes when they are at room temperature.
