I wanted to share with you a recipe that has been with me since I was a teenager.
I have made it so many times I know it by heart:
2 cups of flour
1 cup of sugar
1 cup chocolate powder (I use Nesquick)
Mix this in a bowl and make a little well in the middle.
2 eggs (whole)
1 cup of vegetable oil (I use canola, you don’t want to taste it) (You can substitute 1/2 apple sauce and 1/2 oil instead of 1 cup of oil)
1 cup hot water
In the well mix the egg and the oil a little before you put the water, you don’t want the water to be so hot that cooks the eggs, lol!
I mix by hand, just with a fork, a spoon or wire egg beater.
In the end, add 2 Tbsp baking powder (shallow tbsp – I use real spoons, not the measuring one, lol)
Mix a bit and pour it in a rectangular cake pan, greased with oil. If you want to take this cake out of the pan uncut, better line up with parchment paper. I don’t because I cut it in squares with a plastic knife or spatula and serve.
Bake 350F for 30 minutes. Here is what you get:
