Cracked Chocolate Cake :))

Happy Halloween...

Emergency chocolate cake

Got the recipe from one of my cook book.This is very easy to make and can be dressed up using little whipped cream or confectioner's sugar on top.I used some home made colored icing to write on top of it.when i saw the cake was cracked, felt little disappointed, but hey..this is halloween..nothing should look perfect right?


All purpose flour - 2 cups
Sugar - 11/4 cup
Baking soda - 3/4 tsp
Cocoa powder - 3/4
Water - 1 1/4 cup
Mayonnaise - 1 cup
Vanilla extract - 1tbsp


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Lightly coat an 8 inch square cake pan with veg.oil spray.I used rect.pan.Whisk flour,sugar,baking soda togeher in a large bowl.In another bowl, whisk the cocoa and water together until smooth.whisk in the mayo and vanilla.Stir the mayo mixture into the flour mixture until combined.Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top.Bake until a toothpick inserted comes out clean abt 35-40 mts.
