Mom’s Minute Chocolate Cake

Minute Chocolate Cake had to be, next to her pie recipes, one of my Mother’s phenoms.  It’s incredibly quick to make especially if you do not have a cake mix in the house and you offered to bring dessert.  We had it often.  She would also say to me it was very inexpensive to make because it does not require eggs or butter.  WHAT you say?  If you enjoy moist cake, this is your new love.

 Preheat your oven to 350°.

In your mixer’s bowl, using the whisk attachment, add all the dry ingredients.  Whisk till blended .  You should scrape down the sides with your spatula while bringing up the bottom of the dry ingredients to make sure all are blended well.   Mix on low for a minute.

In a one cup liquid measure add the oil, vanilla and plain vinegar.  Add to the dry ingredients mixing on low.  Next add the water one cup at a time blending well between each cup.  Using your spatula, scrape down the sides continuing to mix but on medium for three minutes.

Pour into an UNGREASED 9 x 13 pan.  Bake the batter  at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes clean after inserting it into the middle of the cake.

I use a white butter cream frosting to finish it off.  This is delicious with vanilla ice cream too.

Mangiere bene!  (Eat well)

    1. Yes, I can’t even begin to tell you how old it is. Plus, Mom wrote it all on side of the card. Note it says double batch – that’s for a 9×13. She would always make the small square pan for us. I served that cake with vanilla frosting yesterday and it was a huge hit. The rest goes to the family with four boys down the street.
