I use this recipe to make an ice cream cake for my son…he always asks for one for his birthday.





Penny Wise Fudge Cake


Dry:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt

Wet:
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1-1/2 cups water
1-1/2 teaspoons vinegar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl…add wet ingredients and stir with a wire whisk until well blended.

Batter will be very thin…

This cake can be used as a layer cake, cupcakes or a sheet cake.

Bake for 25 minutes for layer or sheet cake…testing for doneness with either touch or toothpick. For cupcakes start testing for doneness after 15 minutes.

Frost with your favorite frosting, cake is extremely moist so care must be taken that you don't tear up the top of the cake.

The really dangerous part about this chocolate cake is that it's so easy to put together. You just throw everything in a bowl...stir and bake.

It makes (((really))) good cupcakes.

The winner of the 1996 Pillsbury $1,000,000 Bake-Off was a chocolate cake that used pureed pears for some of the oil. Made the cake very moist and saved some calories!!
