Ingredients


Makes: 12 servings
  • 2 1/2 C (625 ml) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) baking soda
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) Cinnamon (ground), optional
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) salt
  • 1 C (250 ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 C (250 C) buttermilk
  • 1 C (250 ml) cocoa powder
  • 2 1/4 C (560 ml) sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla
  • 1 C (250 ml) boiling water

Preparation


 
  • Preheat oven to 350° F (175° C).
  • In a bowl, use a fork to stir flour with baking soda, Cinnamon, if desired, and salt. In another large bowl, whisk oil with buttermilk, cocoa, sugar, eggs and vanilla.
  • Pour buttermilk mixture over flour, then pour in boiling water. Stir just until mixed (batter will be runny). Do not overbeat, or cake will be tough.
  • Divide mixture between two 9” (23 cm) pans lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 35 minutes, until toothpicks inserted in the centre of cakes come out clean.
  • Let cool in pans. Run a knife along the inside edge of pans and turn cakes out onto cooling rack. Cool completely.
