What's magic about this cake? It contains no eggs, no dairy, and it's super easy to make. This recipe never fails. It's decadent, moist, and dangerously delicious. Makes 2 - 8" cakes or 8 cupcakes.
1-1/2 cups unbleached flour
3/4 cup sugar or other sweetener
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 cup cold water
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and cocoa powder in a bowl and stir with a fork until mixed. Make a well in the center and add the vanilla, oil, vinegar, and water. Stir with a fork until well mixed. Pour into a 2 - 8" cakes pans that have been greased and floured - I use parchment paper (or cupcake pan), and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool completely, then frost with Chocolate Cream Frosting (below).
