Easy Chocolate Cake


This recipe only takes one bowl, just imagine, easy chocolate cake!




3/4 cup plus 2 tbsp whole-wheat pastry flour

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup nonfat buttermilk

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

1 large egg, lightly beaten

2 tbsp canola oil

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup hot strong black coffee

Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting




1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-inch round cake pan with cooking spray. Line the pan with a circle of wax paper.


2. Whisk flour, granulated sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.


3.  Add buttermilk, brown sugar, egg, oil and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add hot coffee and beat to blend. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.






4. Bake the cake until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes; remove from the pan, peel off the wax paper and let cool completely. Dust the top with confectioners’ sugar before slicing.
