- Vinegar is one of the ingredients.
Three things make this cake good:
- The ingredients are usually in the pantry.
- It’s a dense, chocolaty cake.
- A quick chocolate icing is spread over the chocolate cake.
Here’s what you’ll need:
*Update – I originally forgot the baking soda in the ingredients. I’ve added it now and I’m so sorry for the folks who made the cake without the soda. Thanks for letting me know I forgot.*
- 3 cups flour
- 6 Tbs. cocoa
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 3/4 cup oil
- 2 Tbs. vinegar
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 cups water
Stir together the dry ingredients in a 9×13 pan until well blended. Add the liquid ingredients, mixing right in the pan. Mix until smooth. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Cool the cake completely before icing it. Here’s what you’ll need for the icing:
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 1/2 Tbs. cocoa
- 3 Tbs. milk
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Melt the first 3 ingredients in a saucepan. Don’t boil it. Remove from heat and add the powdered sugar. Stir in the vanilla. You may need to add more powdered sugar to get it to the right consistency.
