Chocolate Cake Day

Happy National Chocolate Cake Day!  Here’s our favorite chocolate cake recipe from my grandmother.  It’s a great chocolate cake to bake when you have limited ingredients because it doesn’t use any eggs, milk or butter, which makes it vegan, too.  Kids also love to make Black Magic Crazy Cake!


Black Magic Crazy Cake

Mix thoroughly in a 13″x 9″x 2″ pan:

3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
6 tbsp cocoa (can use dark chocolate)
2 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt

Make 3 holes in the dry ingredients and add:

¾ cup canola oil
2 tbsp vinegar
2 tsp vanilla

Pour over all and mix well with a fork:

2 cups cold water (or coffee)

Mixture will be thin.
Bake at 350º for 35 – 40 minutes.
Becomes more rich and chocolatey on the 2nd day.
