How to Make Super Easy One Bowl Chocolate Cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease and lightly flour a circular or rectangular cake tin of your choice. For circular, around 25cm diameter is good, for rectangular 23x33cm.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  3. Make a well in the centre and pour in the eggs, coffee, milk, oil and vinegar. Mix until smooth, and don’t worry if the batter is thin. That’s how it should be.
  4. Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 35-40 minutes or until a skewer test shows it is cooked through.
  5. Allow cooling before slicing and serving. Decorate as desired.
