Conversation in our house at 11.30am:
Him: "I could really do with a piece of cake."
Her: "Put the oven on and I'll make you one."
27 minutes later:
Her: "Your cake is ready."
It's a true story. Here is the cake I made to satisfy my husband's whim. I'll call it:
The Quickest Cake
1 1/2 cup self-raising flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup vinegar
1 tsp vanilla essence
This is the best part of this recipe: Other than the baking tin, this is all the washing up I had to do:
Bake in a 350F (175C) oven for 25 minutes.
After cooling slightly (but not too much!) I dished up. Truly the quickest, easiest chocolate cake I have ever made.
