Easiest Cake For Chocoholics

This has to be the easiest chocolate cake recipe I have ever come across. I’ve modified the recipe in many different ways and it always comes out perfect. I’ve tried using all whole wheat pastry flour, far less sugar, sometimes I replace half of the sugar with brown rice syrup, and half of the oil with apple sauce. Whatever I do to it, it always works out! The texture and taste may vary slightly, but it’s always delicious. It’s a magic cake!

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray an 8 by 8 inch baking pan with cooking spray.

2. In a medium sized mixing bowl sift together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and baking soda. Add salt and mix well.

3. In a small bowl whisk together the oil, vinegar, vanilla extract, and water.

4. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and gently fold until all ingredients are incorporated. It’s very important to try not to overmix the batter or it will be tough and chewy!

4. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
