Chocolate Crazy Cake

Crazy Cake? (No Bowls, Eggs, Butter or Milk)

Posted by Tip Hero on Monday, 1 February 2016

The ingredients are:

  • 1-½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup water

After preheating an oven to 177 degrees Celcius, grease a cake pan and mix all the dry ingredients together.

Then, make three depressions in the mixture, two small and one large.

Pour the vinegar into one of the small holes, and the vanilla into the other. The vegetable oil goes into the large depression.

Pour water over everything and then mix again until the mixture is smooth. Bake for 35 minutes and allow to cool, before frosting with you favourite icing or none.
