Quick & Moist Dairy Free Chocolate Cake
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 cups cold water
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
Look at that, not even any eggs! I know it sounds like of strange to use vinegar, but you don't taste it and it is a very small amount. Now that I'm thinking of it, I may use applesauce next time in place of the vegetable oil for a more healthy version. Trust me, once you make this, you will never use boxed cake mix again! This is so simple to make.
Heat Oven to 350 degrees. In large mixing bowl combine all ingredients. Beat with electric mixer, or I just used a wooden spoon, until well combined. Pour batter into well greased 9x13 baking dish. Bake for 35-40 minutes, altitude depending, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. I found that when I made this in Colorado it took less time to bake then it did in Arizona, altitude difference, so just be ware of that and keep an eye on it.
I frosted it with my mom's famous Peanut Butter-Chocolate frosting! It is heaven in your mouth. These pictures were taken when I made the cake back in May for Josh's birthday.
Happy Chocolate Monday to all :)
