Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth With Simple & Delicious Chocolate Cake

Last month, we cooked a meal with friends. My friend, Betsy, baked a perfect, super moist chocolate cake. She dusted it with powdered sugar and served it with cut strawberries that we brought. She shared her recipe with me and I made the cake for Valentine's Day dinner.

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup brewed coffee (or hot water)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbs powdered sugar

Mix dry ingredients together with the brewed coffee (or hot water). Add egg and butter. Mix well. Pour into a greased 8-inch baking pan (round or square). Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Test for doneness with a toothpick.Cool. Dust with powdered sugar. Cut and serve.
