Amazon Chocolate Cake
This was my attempt at a recipe sent to me by www.flickr.com/photos/jgodsey. 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.
