You want chocolate cake, but as you rummage through the fridge…no eggs! Ugh!
Here is a chocolate cake recipe I ran into on YouTube that doesn’t need those elusive eggs.
The recipe is from Jenny Jones on her YouTube channel “Jenny Can Cook”, called Easy Chocolate Cake.
(Yes, that Jenny Jones from the 90’s daytime talk show The Jenny Jones Show. Who knew?!)
My eight year old FoodNetwork Star, JuBean, made this cake with only a tad of help from me. (Hey, chocolate cake is serious business; you must not trifle with these most important things!)
EASY CHOCOLATE CAKE
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup cool water
6 Tbsp oil
1 Tbsp vinegar (or lemon juice)
1 tsp vanilla
Mix together in bowl (we use the hand mixer…no need for the behemoth Kitchen Aid). Pour into a greased 9 inch cake pan. Cook for 40 min at 350.
2 Tbsp butter–softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp cocoa
1/2 tsp vanilla
Mix together and if needed, thin with milk 1/2 tsp at a time up to 3 tsp. Frost cool cake and then devour.
