One Bowl Chocolate Cake

One Bowl.

Sometimes you read those recipes that have a ton of ingredients and complicated steps like put these two ingredients together then softly let this other ingredient penetrate the other two etc. I have a solution for you. ONE BOWL chocolate cake. It is simple and easy. You throw all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix them together, the outcome is delicious. 

I found the one bowl chocolate cake recipe here and have made a few adjustments of my own.

  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 2/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup hot coffee
  • pinch of salt

The key differences between my recipe and the original are the apple sauce, brown sugar and coffee. The original recipe asks for white sugar, I think brown sugar tastes way better and gives it a richer color. I used apple sauce instead of oil,you can't taste the difference. Apple sauce is healthier and I think it makes the cake moister! Finally, instead of a cup of boiling water I used coffee because it makes the cake  more flavorful. The one thing about this recipe is I would suggest adding the coffee last. I also added a little bit of raw coconut! Bake these on 350 for about 20- 30 minutes. If you do cupcakes they will be ready much quicker.

I made one 9 inch round cake pan and 12 muffin sized cupcakes with this recipe!

Enjoy :)
