Happy Wearing of The Green Day! = Chocolate Cake – Very Easy

I’ll be bringing this cake to Fiesta Friday #163! Join Angie our founder and leader. Join the party!
Recipe for Chocolate Cake – One Pan Wonder Cake
From the Kitchen Kompanion by Nell Veenstra – Recipes by the Lansing Michigan Ladies Christian Fellowship of the Lansing Christian Reformed Church. Year unknown.
1-1/2 Cup flour
1 – Cup sugar
6 Tablespoons of cooking oil – canola has no after taste
5 Tablespoons of cocoa
1 Tablespoon of vinegar
1 Teaspoon of baking soda
1 Cup of cold water
1-1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
Mix flour and sugar together in an 8″ X  8″ X 2″ pan. (Metric  20 x 20 x 5 cm) Make wells with a a tablespoon in the mixture. Separately mix cooking oil, cocoa, vinegar and soda together and pour over mixture in the pan. Mix well with a fork. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
Remove from oven. Let cool in the  pan. I used a glass pan. Then turned the pan over and the cake slide out easily. I dusted the cake with powdered sugar while it was still a little warm, which gave it a shinny glaze. This is a moist cake. Nice for a treat.
Serve with a dollop of Cherry Chocolate Chunk ice cream and some chocolate syrup drizzled on top.

Thought for the Day
The Infinite Light of Love
There are humans
Who carry a bowl
Of love through their lives,
It overflows to those around them,
Giving off sparks
Igniting the cold coals,
To restart a glowing ember,
For those who have lost their heart,
To remember,
That love is an infinite light
to share with the world.
