I used to make cakes from scratch and then I got lazy. Yes I admit it, I was using cake mixes. Seemed easier. I still did a lot of baking but standard vanilla or chocolate cakes, I was using mixes. So a couple of weeks ago, a sweet young man was telling me of desserts he was making his dad. Got me thinking, ok maybe I should make a dessert, so I did. I made a vanilla cake. Turned out quite good. So this week I made a chocolate cake. I think that will be the end of my making cakes from cake mixes.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp of pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 3/4 cup boiling water with 2 tsp instant coffee

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9×13 baking dish
  2. Sift flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder in a small bowl.
  3. Beat the egg, sugar, oil, sugar, milk and vanilla extract together in a large bowl until smooth.
  4. Pour in the boiling water with coffee and mix well.
  5. Add flour mixture to the egg mixture gradually, stirring until smooth.
  6. Pour the batter into the baking dish. Place in preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean with very small amount of cake on the toothpick due to the fudge texture.
  7. Let cool for 20 minutes before frosting or serving.

You can serve straight, you can ice it, with fruit, or of course ice cream. I have a chocolate ganache recipe if you like. All you need to do is ask.

Have fun and make it your own.
