This cake is amazing for entertaining because it is crazy-easy to make and your guests will never guess it has only five ingredients! The texture is light but still decadent, and rich in chocolate flavor. I love serving it with a big dollop of sweet coconut whipped cream and fresh berries. -Olivia BiermannRecipe courtesy of Liv B's Easy Everyday, by Olivia Biermann.
Prep Time
Cook Time
Total time: 40 minutes
  • 1 2/3 pound all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup organic cane sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 2 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 8-inch round cake pan, lined with parchment
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Whisk together 1 2/3 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 2/3 cup cocoa powder, 1 teaspoon baking powder and a pinch of salt. Add 2 cups water and 1/2 cup canola oil; stir to combine. The batter should be fairly smooth, but a few small lumps are okay.
  3. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the top is set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool completely before slicing and serving.
