I'm indebted to my youngest sister for discovering this delicious chocolate cake recipe on Pinterest from here. It always turns out incredibly.
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 of 3/4 cup cocoa powder (this was originally for two cakes so some measurements are kind of weird)
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup milk (I used our Almond/Coconut milk)
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup boiling water
Preheat oven to 350. Grease 9 inch cake pan with butter or coconut oil.
In a large bowl, add dry ingredients and whisk together. Add milk, oil, egg, and vanilla to the bowl and mix together with an electric mixer. Add boiling water to the batter (the batter will seem really thin but it will work out fine!) and mix on medium/high for a minute to add air to the batter. Pour into cake pan and bake for about 25-30 minutes.
