A simple, fairly easy chocolate cake recipe.

Ingredients

1-2 Chocolate cake1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1c sugar (or 1/2 cup)
1 egg
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate pieces (such as chocolate chips)
1/2 cup chopped nuts
(Optional: 4 ounces cream cheese or sour cream)

Procedure
Put the oil and chocolate in an 8in (20cm) square pan and set it in 350F (175C) oven just until the chocolate melts. (Add sour cream or cream cheese if desired.)
Add remaining ingredients, except chocolate chips and nuts, to the pan.
Beat with a fork until smooth and creamy (about 2 minutes).
Scrape the sides of the pan, and spread the batter evenly in the pan.
Sprinkle with chocolate chips and nuts. Optionally, cut the chocolate chips and nuts into the batter to some extent.
Bake 350F (176.66C if you're feeling more precise than before) for 30 to 40 minutes, untill a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean.
Cool in pan; eat hot or cooled.

ok....i can't stand people always responding with "Google it"

FFS, everyone has different recipes, asking local rfd'ers for theirs isn't much to ask is it????

honestly, if someone asked u for directions on the street you don't tell them to buy a map....

so be nice!

btw...OP, you should try the food forum...you may get better responses there!

Buy some Betty Crocker Moist cake flour

They only cost 2.00 I think and u can make a very big cake with it.

All you need is that flour, water, egg, and butter.

Easy to make and it comes with instructions.

Tastes great

Butter and pound cakes are my favourite. I often use margarine instead of butter though.

http://www.baking911.com/cakes/butterpound.htm

Theses cakes can be flavoured according to taste including the addition of chocolate to make chocolate cake or simply marbling.

Cinnamon, vanilla and orange and lemon zest are also popular flavourings for these cakes.

Baking911 is pretty thorough and explains everything well in step by step fashion so ideal for the novice.

Happy Baking.
