Today my schedule was unexpectedly completely open, and the weather evoking spring in a wonderfully sunny day. Today was a day for me, to chill out and do things that I enjoy – yoga on the porch, enjoying a good book at Starbucks, a leisurely stroll to the grocery store (you read correctly, I actually really enjoy grocery shopping :D). And of course chocolate. Someone asked me today if I wanted a chocolate cookie, and I half-jokingly told her “There never needs to be a question with chocolate.” Every day is a good day for chocolate, and because I had time and enjoy baking, I decided to bake a chocolate cake. I was out of eggs, and was kind of debating going to get groceries or not, and literally googled “egg free chocolate cake” and found this recipe. As I do, I tweaked the recipe and whipped it up lickety split – seriously, it took me roughly 5 minutes and 1 bowl before
dumping the batter into a pan to bake. How did it turn out, you ask, on the edge of your seat I’m sure :p I may or may not have already snarfed down 2 pieces. There will be repeats of this cake in my future for sure. Enough chit chat, there’s chocolate waiting, which is clearly more important…
One Bowl Chocolate Cake
- 1/2 cup wholewheat flour
- 1/2 cup white flour
- (opt) 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (if omitting increase sugar and cocoa powder a bit)
- 2 Tbsp cup white sugar (increase if not frosting the cake)
- 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 Tbsp vinegar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup water
Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a 8×8 inch baking pan.
In a bowl mix together dry ingredients. Make a well and toss in wet ingredients (seriously, just dump ’em in, no need to get fancy and pre-mix them :D). Mix together.
Scrape batter into the pan and bake for 25-30 minutes.
(opt) Once cool add your favourite frosting – I added some premade chocolate frosting and shredded coconut and it was amazing and worth what I’m sure was aLOT of calories.
Anyway. Enough talk. Go get your chocaholic on lovelies.
