One-Pan Chocolate Cake

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 heaping Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Ad
  • 6 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbsp. white vinegar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1-2 Tbsp. water

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Measure flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt into an 8- or 9-inch round or square baking pan and mix well. Be sure to combine all ingredients. Make three holes in the dry mixture. Pour the vinegar into one, the oil into another, and the vanilla into the third. Pour the cold water over the entire pan. Mix all the ingredients together until well blended. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick poked into the center comes out clean.

When finished, place cake on a wire rack and let it cool in the pan for approximately 35 minutes.

This incredibly moist cake is good frosted or unfrosted.

Is the confectioner's sugar and tbsps of water for an icing at the end?

My mother used to make this cake all the time and I make it for my family also. This is one of my family's favorite cakes and I also make it with cup cakes. My recipe does not have the confection sugar or the extra tablespoon of water, so I am guesing this is for icing.

Sometimes we eat it plain, or with Cool Whip or with confection sugar sprinkled on top. Ocassionally I frost it but not often. Try it you will love it too!!
