Super Easy Chocolate Cake

Yummy Chocolate Cake

Yummy Chocolate Cake

I wanted to make desert today but had run out of butter so that ruled out cookies and brownies.  I found this recipe but slightly modified it as usual.  It is very easy and turned out really nicely


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1/3 cup cooking oil
  • 1 cup water

Mix all the dry ingredients really well.  Add the liquid ingredients and mix with a fork.  Pre heat the oven  to 180 degrees Celsius.  Put batter  in a pan and bake for 35 to 45 minutes until the fork comes out clean.


  • 4 chocolate squares
  • 3 Tbsp Milk
  • 2 Tbsp Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Icing sugar

Melt the chocolate, blend all ingredients together.  Cover the cake with the icing.

      @whisper: yes no eggs, I thought it was a weird recipe at first but it is so easy and simple, no beating. You can even just mix it in the dish you are going to bake it in. Only one dirty pan and one dirty fork :-).

                    i made this cake for school and it was really good and every 1 liked it and it was really delish. i would encourage people to make it and instead of milk 4 the icing u can add double cream

                      This is SO good! I replaced any oil with melted margarine and added more cocoa since I like my choc cakes darker, but otherwise did everything the same and it was very good for such an easy and quick to make cake.
