Description

Everyone should have a chocolate cake in their repertoire that can be made quickly and easily, even on the busiest of weekdays--or as a go-to for entertaining. This one-bowl recipe is just that, since it calls for only the most basic of ingredients that you should already and always have on hand, and is whisked together, no mixer required. It's delicious on its own, but even better (and more guest-worthy) when dolloped with creme fraiche or whipped cream, or simply dusted with powdered sugar.

Ingredients

  • 170 grams flour
  • 170 grams sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 250 milliliters water
  • powdered sugar

Directions

  1. 1Preheat an oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. 2Grease a nonstick cake pan lightly with oil.
  3. 3Add the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and baking soda to a bowl and mix well. Create a well in the bowl.
  4. 4In the center of the mixture, add the oil, vinegar, vanilla, and water. Stir the ingredients quickly by hand or with a whisk.
  5. 5Bake for approximately 35 to 40 minutes.
  6. 6Sprinkle with powdered sugar, and serve with whipped cream, creme Anglaise, or vanilla ice cream.
