Dark Chocolate Cake - using oil and cocoa powder

Butter is expensive in Ghana, and good cooking chocolate is non-existent - so a delicious rich chocolate cake like this that uses oil and cocoa is perfect.


I cut the recipe in half and baked it in a loaf pan.

"The absolute best, richest, and easiest one-bowl chocolate cake recipe ever! It's great topped with chocolate cream cheese frosting!"
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup cold brewed coffee (I used water and vanilla extract)
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vinegar (oops - forgot the vinegar and it was still good)
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13-inch pan.
2.In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the eggs, coffee, milk, oil and vinegar. Mix until smooth; the batter will be thin. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
3.Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
