In our household, there is one chocolate cake recipe. A recipe without peer, for a cake that rises above all other cakes. A cake of great genius! A cake that never fails!
There are many versions of this recipe floating around on the internet. It was developed during the Great Depression and requires no milk or eggs (you can make it for friends with egg allergies). It’s flexible when it comes to oil/shortening, and you don’t need chocolate on hand to make it.
Did I mention? It’s a 1-pan cake, too. Mix, bake and serve in your best-looking heat-proof glass pan. No need to grease the pan, and only minimal clean-up needed. Why would you ever make a chocolate cake mix again?

Bake at 350 F for 35 minutes.
Cool & ice, if desired.
