Super Moist Chocolate Cake

What you need: 

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (can substitute with whole wheat flour)
1 cup white or brown sugar
3 tablespoons sifted good quality cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt, optional
5 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup cold water

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; mix well. Make three deep holes in the dry mixture. Into one hole, pour the oil, into the next hole, pour the vinegar, and into the final hole, pour the vanilla.
2. Pour the water into the bowl, over all. Mix the wet and dry ingredients together until there aren't any more lumps and pour into an ungreased 9x9 baking pan, 2 inches deep.
3. Bake for about 30 minutes, test with a fork.
By far the most surprisingly deeelightful cake. This recipe is great for adults and for kids ages 3 and up. Enjoy this delicious cake. You will be surprised at its moistness and richness! It can be cooled and iced with your choice of icing or can be enjoyed on its own. The batter can also be used to make cupcakes!
For an instant cake, have the premeasured, premixed dry ingredients at hand, then simply add the wet ingredients when you want a fresh treat! It makes a great birthday cake! Hey, it even freezes well!

turned out perfect!  used natural applesauce for all the oil, and added an extra half tsp of vanilla.  these made great cupcakes - frosted with mint chocolate frosting.  they definitely are super moist - i'll never use oil in these cupcakes ever - they don't need the extra fat at all!

Uhblondie, I haven't seen you were for a while! I love that you won't relax your standards and you are not afraid to post when they haven't been met.

I will debate anyone who says it's just "ok". People, we're VEGAN, we don't eat a lot of delicious cakes!  :P

And I will debate that. I eat lots of delicious vegan cake (more than I should, as a matter of fact), and I think this recipe is mediocre at best. Let's not settle for less than positively delicious desserts just because we're vegan!

If anyone is wondering, I calculated the calorie content of the cake ( I think!), and if you cut the cake into 16 pieces..it would be about 130 calories a piece.  ::)

I love this recipe.  It's so easy to make and it truely is moist ;D.  I usually decrease the sugar by about a 1/4 cup and it's perfect.
