Amazon Chocolate Cake

This was my attempt at a recipe sent to me by I'm not quite sure about it yet. It tasted of vinegar last night but improved a lot by this morning. I asked a friend to do a taste test and she seemed to enjoy it.


Recipe as follows -


5 tablespoons olive oil (I used vegetable oil)

1½ teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon vinegar

1 cup cold water

1 ½ cups flour

1/3 cup cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking soda (I just substituted self raising flour for the whole plain flour/ baking soda thing)

1 cup sugar

½ teaspoon salt (I just put a pinch)


1. Preheat the oven to 180°c, grease a cake tin.

2. Whisk together the oil, vanilla and vinegar with 1 cup cold water. Whisk in the dry ingredients to make a smooth batter.

3. Pour into cake tin and bake for 30 minutes or until it tests cooked with a skewer.

4.Cool in the pan.
