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.
