Easy Chocolate Cake

This cake is quick and easy to make and fun to eat. It's simple, yet utterly delicious. It is probably...
one of the easiest and healthiest cakes I've made in a long time. Seriously. It's awesomely rich, moist and flavourful, although it has no butter or eggs. I bet you have every ingredient in your kitchen.
The fact that it has no butter or eggs just adds to the awesomeness.

Easy Chocolate Cake

Serves 16


1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Canola oil (vegetable oil)
1 cup cold water


In a large bowl, mix flower, sugar, cocoa powder, salt and baking soda. Make three separate holes in the flower mixture. In one hole put vanilla; in another hole the vinegar, and in the third hole the canola oil.
Pour the water slowly over the mixture. Use the whisk to mix everything together for 2 minutes. Pour into a lightly greased 8 by 8 inch baking pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.

Serve with sliced bananas or whipped cream, or dusted with powdered sugar.
