Really impressed at the simplicity of this cake. It turns out moist and soft. I halved the recipe and baked in 7 inch round pan for 25 minutes.

If you want you shall apply frosting of your choice.  Chocolate Oil Cake It is not so sweet, fantastically easy to prepare. I also love the one bowl mixing, beaters not required. This is great for those intolerant of lactose and cholesterol as well as vegan.

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
