Made this cake today.
For when you are in the mood for a light chocolate cake, perhaps on a summer afternoon with coffee or tea, this wacky cake is a good choice. (Look here for a decadent chocolate buttermilk cake.)
This recipe uses no eggs, and I don’t icing the cake. It’s more of a “coffee” cake type cake.
In large mixing bowl, sift:
3 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup melted or very soft butter
splash of buttermilk (about 1/4 cup)
2 tsp vinegar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups cold water
Blend until smooth. Spray 9 X 13 pan with nonstick spray. Bake cake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes. Cool and serve.
