Motherload Cake Wannabe

It was my brothers 28th Birthday last weekend and so I decided I would make him one of his most favorite cakes, The Motherload Cake from Claim Jumper. I found this recipe online but I cut the recipe in half so that I would have three layers instead of 6. Although the cake was delicious, it didn't quite have that Motherload taste, it may be because I didn't make the Motherload Frosting, but either way it was a great chocolatey cake that my brother and everyone else enjoyed. Happy Birthday Bro.

3 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 Tbsp butter (softened)
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups flour
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
2 1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

1. Add first seven ingredients (eggs, sugar, butter, vegetable oil, cocoa powder, buttermilk, and vanilla) into a mixing bowl, mixing well in between each ingredient.
2. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Then add to mixing bowl.
3. Fold the boiling water into the ingredients in the mixing bowl. Mix well.
4. Grease and flour three 8" round baking pans. Pour batter equally into each of the pans. Add 1/2 cup chocolate chips into each pan.
5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes. Let cakes cool for 10 minutes on a rack, then remove from pans.
6. When completely cool, ice with chocolate frosting. Coat with nuts if desired.
7. Cake will keep for 3 days if covered and chill. Serve at room temperature. Enjoy!
