Happy Valentines Day! Let’s eat chocolate! This recipe is made from scratch and does not contain any eggs. I also experimented with Coconut Oil that is sold in our retail stores and it was really fun and easy to use!
3 cups Honeyville All Purpose Flour
2 cups Granulated Sugar
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 cup Baking Cocoa Powder
3/4 cup Coconut Oil
2 Tbsp Distilled White Vinegar
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 cups Cold Water
Begin by preheating oven to 350 degrees. Next prepare the coconut oil (coconut oil will solidify as it gets cold). I haven’t used coconut oil much as I didn’t know how to use it but it is easy! This is what it looks like-I’ve just had it on my counter top in the kitchen:
Place coconut oil in a sauce pan over medium low heat and stir continuously until it is all melted. From here you just measure what you need.
Measure into a bowl the flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and cocoa powder.
Sift the dry ingredients into an un-greased 9×13 baking pan. (My sifter is small so I did mine in batches).
Make 3 wells in the mix.
In the first pour the oil, the second pour the vinegar, and the last add the vanilla.
Next pour cold water over everything.
Mix well with a fork.
Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes, until tooth pick inserted comes out clean. Once cooled, frost with your favorite icing. I kept mine simple and just dusted to the top with powdered sugar.
This cake is moist and delicious and chocolatey and everything you want in a cake!
