Here is a recipe for chocolate cake, using olive oil!
The cake is super simple to make, and it’s also vegan, and I guarantee you’ll like it!!
1 1/4 cups flour
1 cup sugar (brown sugar works well too)
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda (or 2 1/2 tsp baking powder)
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup warm water
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tsp distilled white or apple cider vinegar
Starting from the top of the list, add all the ingredients to a large mixing bowl. I sieve the flour, but just put everything else in as it is.
Mix everything together thoroughly, and pour the mix, which will be quite runny, into a cake tin. I usually line the bottom with greaseproof paper first.
Bake in the oven at about 180 degrees, for about 45 minutes. Keep checking with a knife, and turn the oven off when the knife comes out clean. Usually I leave the cake in the oven for ten minutes or so after this, and then bring it out to let it cool.
It should be moist inside. Enjoy!
