Okay, this is the only chocolate cake recipe you will ever need. It's moist and delicious, and what's more it's actually pretty easy (as baking goes). Plus, it uses no eggs, milk, or butter, so it's actually relatively low in fat. For best results, use chocolate sour cream icing. I don't know where my mom found this recipe, probably Sunset Magazine (Gourmet is a long shot. She subscribes to both, but this really isn't Gourmet's style)

AMAZON CHOCOLATE CAKE
for an 8-inch square cake

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baki ng soda
1 cup sugar (granulated)
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. white wine or cider vinegar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 cup salad oil
1 cup cold water

Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease and flour an 8-inch pan. (If you're going to serve right out of the pan instead of unmolding first you can skip the flour here)

Combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, sugar, cocoa, and salt) and sift them together into the baking pan. Shake the pan to level the ingredients, then with your finger poke three small holes into the mixture. Pour the vinegar into one hole, the vanilla into another and the oil into the third. Pour the water over all. Using a table fork, stir the mixture very well--scrape the bottom and corners thoroughly so you don't miss any flour. Mixing should take about 1 1/2 minutes, and the resulting batter should be mostly smooth (a few small lumps are okay and will disappear with baking).

Bake for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes before unmolding (or if you're not unmolding, before serving).

For 2 9" round layers or one 9"x13" pan just double the recipe, but mix in a bowl with a wire whip. The oil can be reduced to 1/2 cup + 2 Tbs. instead of 2/3 cup. The layer version is perfect for birthdays & such.

CHOCOLATE SOUR CREAM ICING
for one layer

1 cup (1 6 oz. pkg.) semisweet chocolate morsels
1/2 cup sour cream (light sour cream or sour half & half work fine)
1/8 tsp. salt

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler (a small bowl set in a pan of simmering water). Remove from the water, add the sour cream and salt and stir until thoroughly blended. Spread on the cake while the frosting is still warm. For a two-layer cake, double the recipe. Frosting should go on the outside edge of the cake and between layers as well as on top.
