Moist Chocolate Cake and Awards!

Moist Chocolate Cake! Wow! My first attempt in preparing cake! Oh my God! To be true, it turned out successful! It taste really good and awesome! May be its a simple task for the daring bakers but for me its a great thing! I was crossing my fingers for the whole time that the cake took to bake in the oven! My heart beat slightly started to beat fast when the cake started to raise in the tin and I become much tensed and my body started to sweat and I started to pray God that the cake should not overflow out of the tin. Once the cake stopped to raise, i felt as i have got one more chance to take birth and live in this world. Anyways, it came out too good and i started to serenade for the cake! And now coming to my recipe....


All Purpose Flour - 3 cups
Sugar - 2 cups
Water - 2 cups
Oil - 1/2 cup or 8 tbsp
Cocoa Powder - 6 tbsp
Baking Soda - 2 tsp
Vanilla Essence - 1 tbsp
White Vinegar - 2 tbsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp

Cooking Instructions:

Sift all purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking soda,and salt together in a bowl (let's call this mixture as dry flour mix). Whisk the sugar, water, vanilla essence, vinegar and oil in another bowl until the sugar is dissolved well. Now add the dry flour mix in this mix slowly and beat well until no lumps are found.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Pour the batter into a greased and floured pan. Bake it for about 35 to 40 minutes. The cake will be slightly moist when tested with a tooth pick.
