One-Bowl Chocolate Cake
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. + cooling
I always go to Taste of Home first when searching for a recipe, and this one definitely is Not a disappointment. It is very moist and light. The icing is perfect. I bake a lot for bake sales and this i s a winner.
I’ve made this twice now and it is delicious and moist and disappears quickly! Very easy recipe as is. I made the accompanying frosting that was with the recipe and it was the perfect amount for the top of the cake. Will definitely make again.
I just make this today and love how simple it is to make, one bowl, yes! What I don't love is how flat the flavor is, do yourself a favor and add a teaspoon of vanilla and sub out the water with some fresh brewed coffee. I'm sorry I didn't do that, I have made this recipe before and those changes will make you very happy. Unfortunately I forgot about it this time.
I have this recipe from an old church recipe book from the ladies. You think the water and shortening is too much but it isn't, cake comes out perfect.
Excellent cake, I also add 1 teaspoon vanilla and instead of just 1 cup hot water, I use either half coffee
I made this for my daughter who likes dark, moist, chocolate cake. She said it was just right. One change I made was that I added a teaspoon of vanilla. Another thing I did, that I wouldn’t recommend, I made it into a two layer cake. Perhaps because we are at high allude, but it didnt the cake didn’t stand up well as a layer. It was so moist that it wanted to fall apart after it was decorated. Next time I’ll leave it as a 9x13.
Still making this delicious cake!
This cake is so easy and sooooo moist. We over it!!!
My son has a peanut allergy and I was previously using a "safe" boxed cake for his birthday cakes. I wanted to make him a cake from scratch, but needed it to be nut free and mixer-free. Tall order! This recipe looked simple enough and based on the reviews I decided to try it. It was the best chocolate cake I ever made. Literally perfect: delicious and moist. I doubled the recipe and used coconut oil in place of canola to make a sheet cake with natural-dye icing and a 3 pound white chocolate Millenium Falcon in the middle for my son's 6th birthday Star Wars party. I was asked for the recipe at the party, too. Thank you for my new go-to cake recipe!
Delicious and easy to make. Very moist. A definite make again
