Chocolate Cake with Olive Oil

Okay, this cake is really good. It uses a minimum of ingredients to create a moist, dark, delicious cake. I found the original recipe at Culinary Concoctions by Peabody, and tweaked it slightly (and by tweaked it, I mean converted it to metric scales, added more vanilla and used olive oil). Easy peasy delicious cake. You have to try this!

110 g flour

225 g sugar

6 tbsp. cocoa powder

0.75 tsp. baking powder

0.75 tsp. baking soda

pinch of salt

1 tbsp. vanilla sugar

1 egg

8 tbsp. milk

4 tbsp. olive oil

8 tbsp. boiling water


Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl, and the wet ingredients in another. Then mix the wet ingredients into the dry, and pour into a greased and lined tin (20 cm round tin is fine) and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for approximately 30 minutes, until a skewer comes out clean.

Dust with powdered sugar, frost or eat plain :) (told you – easy peasy)
