Chocolate Goodness!

Chocolate Cake- the epitome of all that is good in this world.   Perfecting the chocolate cake is an extremely rewarding experience and the criteria are very simple. In honor of  The Wall Street Journal article, I decided to make myself the best chocolate cake in the world!   
This one bowl wonder is easy, versatile, and requires very little cleanup.  Chocolate lovers, get ready to make the best chocolate cake of your life with this super moist (non dairy) and chocolaty crowd pleasing recipe!

Cake of Chocolaty Goodness
2 C. Sugar
1 ¾ C. Flour
¾ C. Cocoa
1 ½ t. BP
1 ½ t. BS
1 t. Salt
2 Eggs
1 C. Almond or Soy Milk
½ C. Oil
2 t. Vanilla
1 C. Boiling Water

Pre-heat oven to 350.  Spray a bundt pan.  In a bowl, Stir together the dry ingredients.  Add the rest of the ingredients, except the boiling water, and whisk together till smooth.  Whisk in boiling water, until it is completely incorporated.  The batter should look runny.  Pour into your sprayed bundt pan and bake for 35-45 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.  Cool completely and flip over to turn out cake.

Alibabka Tip: I like to jazz up my cake my drizzling melted chocolate on top.  It not only looks great, but it covers up any potential mishaps when unmolding the cake.  You can drizzle with dark and white chocolate or sprinkle nuts over the top. Anyway you choose to decorate, it will turn out beautiful!

    1. Oh no Amy! use a knife around the edges. Also take the cake out when it is cool. If all else fails, you can cover up the "blemishes" with drizzles chocolate.
