Girl Scout Camp Chocolate Cake

  • Yield: 6 - 9 servings


1 1/2cups flour
1cup sugar
1/4cup cocoa powder
1teaspoon baking soda
1/2teaspoon salt
1/2cup chopped nuts, optional
1/3cup canola or vegetable oil
1tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1teaspoon vanilla
1cup water


Stir together all dry ingredients in a medium size bowl. Then add the liquid ingredients, and stir by hand until well combined.  Pour into a 9 x 9 inch cake pan.  (I just mix everything together in my cake pan with a fork!)  Bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes.

Serve cake warm, or you can top it with ice cream, or whipped cream.  If you prefer you can frost it after it has cooled, but I warn you that it probably won't be around long enough to frost! 

Makes just enough for an after-school snack or for a family dinner.  Enjoy!
