EASY CHOCOLATE CAKE

1 C All Purpose Flour
1 C Sugar
3 Tb Unsweetened Cocoa
1 tsp Baking Soda
tsp Kosher Salt
6 Tb Vegetable Oil
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Tb White Vinegar
1 C Cold Water

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In an 8" or 9" square baking pan, whisk together the all purpose flour, sugar, unsweetened cocoa, baking soda, and coarse salt.

Make a well in center of flour mixture and add the vegetable oil, vanilla extract, white vinegar, and water. Whisk until well combined.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.

Let it cool completely in the pan on a wire rack.

Cutting the cake allows the calories to spill out.
