Post TNT- One Bowl Chocolate Cake

I sometimes double this recipe to make a 2 layer cake.

1C all purpose flour
1C sugar
1/2C unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2tsp baking soda
1/4tsp baking powder
1/2tsp salt
3/4C milk
1/3C vegetable oil
1tsp vanilla
1 egg

Grease & flour (use cocoa pwder to avoid leaving white marks on your cake) a 9x1 1/2 inch round or 8x8x2 inch square cake pan & set aside.

Combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, & salt in a large bowl. Add milk, oil, & vanilla. Combine just until moistened with a mixer set on low. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add egg & beat for 2 minutes more.

Bake for 30-35 minutes in preheated 350F oven. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before removing cake from pan. Cool completely before icing with your favorite frosting.

its very similar to hersheys chocolate cake recipe which i often make and which is our favorite chocolate cake.the slight difference that i see is that this recipe doesnt have boiling water which is used to make the cake fudgy and moist.i'm planning to try this recipe today and see how different it is from hersheys cake.i like that its easy and a one bowl recipe and i'm sure it will turn out great.
Don't let love interfere with your appetite. It never does with mine.
