I have used a well known eggless chocolate cake recipe for years but was never quite content with the taste. It had a bit of an aftertaste so I just had to tweak it! I have used it in many birthday cakes in a variety of requested themes.
Here is the recipe:
Basic Chocolate Cake
Combine Dry Ingredients:
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa (if you want to bump up the chocolate add an extra 1/4 cup cocoa)
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
Mix and make a well. In the well add:
3/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp vinegar
1 cup water
1 cup milk*
Mix really well with a mixer. Bake in a funnel or 9 by 13 pan at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes.
*Note: If you want to make this dairy-free, use all water instead of milk.
