Have you ever seen the movie, Matilda?
Every time someone mentions chocolate cake, I unfortunately think of a scene from Matilda, where a boy named Bruce Bogtrotter is forced to eat an entire chocolate cake. It’s so gross that even I am turned off of chocolate for a while.
Miss Trunchbull kept the whole school late because this boy ate some chocolate cake.
Healthier Chocolate Cake
- 1 and ½ cups whole-wheat flour (180g)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 2/3 cup sugar or evaporated cane juice
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup oil
- 2 tsp apple cider vinegar (or white)
- ¾ cup cold water
Mix dry ingredients. Then add wet. Mix with a fork (not beaters). Pour into a greased and lined cake pan, and bake in a preheated oven at 355F for about thirty minutes. Cool before frosting.
Above, topped with my incredible Chocolate Bar Pie.
Somewhere, Bruce Bogtrotter is smiling.
