Super Moist Whole Wheat Chocolate Cake


Fresh Ingredients


Storage Ingredients

1.5 cups whole wheat flour

3 tablespoons cocoa

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

5 tablespoons oil

1 tablespoon white vinegar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup cold water

Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add the wet ingredients and mix until smooth. Pour into a 9 inch by 9 inch baking pan, two inches deep. (The pan does not have to be greased.) Bake at 350 degrees for about 30-40 minutes. Test with a fork for doneness.

Notice that there aren’t any eggs? I have no idea how it works but this recipe makes one surprisingly moist and delicious chocolate cake. I always double the recipe and use two 8 1/2″ round pans. When the cakes are completely cooled or even slightly chilled after being refrigerated, I frost between the layers and the top only with a chocolate whipped cream frosting. Then I freeze the cake at least overnight and take it out about an hour before we’re going to serve dessert. Lizzie’s having a Birthday party tomorrow night and this is the cake she requested.


Fresh Ingredients

1 pint whipping cream

Storage Ingredients

1/3 cup cocoa

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup powdered sugar

Combine all ingredients and whip as for whipped cream. Refrigerate or freeze after frosting the cake.
