3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups natural sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups cool water
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, and salt) together in large mixing bowl. With a spoon, make three indentations in dry mixture; 1 small, 1 medium, and 1 large.
2. Pour oil into large indentation, vinegar into medium, and vanilla into small. Add the water and mix (do not over beat).
2. Bake for about 45 minutes or until a toothpick can be inserted and come out clean. You will want to adjust the cook time depending upon the baking pan you are using.
This recipe will yield two 9 layers, 24 cupcakes, or 1 bundt cake. The bundt cake took about an hour to bake. Just be sure to keep an eye on your cake.
This is truly the most awesome cake I have made. I baked cupcakes for my classroom using this recipe, and they loved it! Also, I tried this recipe with whole wheat flour--not so great. I would recommend sticking to all purpose flour.'
