all i could think about all day long today was cake! cake! cake! more specifically, chocolate cake with whipped cream and strawberries! so the first thing i did when i got home was to make the quickest cake i know how. and then i put the whisk & bowl in the freezer, and sliced up some berries.
not many berries and no whipped cream made it into the photo, they did not last that long!
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup cold water
3/8 cup oil
1 tbs white vinegar
1 tsp vanilla extract
combine dry ingredients in an ungreased 8"x8" pan. mix with a fork.
combine wet ingredients (i usually do it in a 2-cup measuring cup - fill to 1-cup mark with water, then to 1 3/8 with oil, etc.)
pour wet into dry, stir with fork until just combined.
bake at 350F for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
yum. it happens to be vegan, too. and works with rice flour just as well. and as i was typing this up, i thought: i wonder if using balsamic vinegar would be a stroke of brilliance? i sense some experimentation going on...
