Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder 
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp of baking soda
  • 2 cups water
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice or vinegar
  • ⅔ cup oil

Frosting:

  • 2 Tbsp cocoa
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 6 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 6 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Combine the flour, cocoa, sugar, salt and baking soda.
  2. Add the water, oil, lemon juice and vanilla extract and mix until mixture is uniform and  smooth.  
  3. Pour into a greased round baking pan and bake in the oven at medium heat (around 300°F/150°C) for about 40 minutes.
  4. Mix the frosting ingredients until smooth and uniform, and spread onto the cake after baking.

Notes

  • After the cake has cooled, we recommend using a vegetable peeler to grate bittersweet chocolate over the top.
  • For an even more chocolaty cake add 1 cup of chocolate chips to the batter.
  • To make a coffee cake, replace the cocoa powder with instant coffee powder.
  • For muffins, use half the batter for a pan of 8 muffins, and bake for 20 minutes.
