Quick n’ Easy Chocolate Cake Recipe

I wish I knew who created and mastered this recipe, I would applaud them because ever since Alexander’s mom gave me the recipe it has been a staple in our home for every holiday, birthday, little celebration, dinner party & random Sunday afternoon treat.

It’s too good not to share. And I swear, it’s quick n’ easy. It can easily be made dairy-free and gluten-free, I personally substitute a few ingredients (I noted which ones).


What you will need:

1 ½ cup organic flour

⅓ cup organic, raw cacao (not cocoa)

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

1 cup organic sugar (I always use coconut sugar)

½ cup avocado oil

1 cup cold water or cold coffee

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 Tbsp vinegar


Preheat oven to 375 degrees

  1. Sift flour, cacao, baking soda, salt and sugar in an ungreased 8” square or 9” round baking pan.
  2. In a 2 cup measuring cup, mix together oil, water (or coffee) and vanilla. Pour the liquid ingredients into the baking pan. Mix the batter with a fork or small whisk.
  3. When the batter is smooth, add vinegar and stir quickly – there will be swirls in the batter because of the baking soda and vinegar reacting together, it’s normal, so just continue to stir until evenly distributed.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  5. Enjoy! 

That’s it, easy pease! Sooo when will you make this recipe?!
