Double Chocolate Snack Cake

I hadn't make this cake in ages until recently when I needed a dessert and didn't have eggs! This has always been my standby recipe when there aren't enough eggs for something else!!

Double Chocolate Snack Cake

1 2/3 c. flour
1 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1 c. water
1/3 c. oil
1 tsp. vinegar
3/4 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. choc. chips

Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips and pour into prepared 8x8 baking dish. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.

I just love those quick desserts - and I'm so glad to find another one I don't need eggs for!

Last night as I was scrambling for something - I found white chocolate chips in the freezer & made homemade chocolate covered pretzels. So easy!

I love this cake recipe...but I have never had it with the chocolate chips on top! YUMMY!!!!
This recipe was popular during the great depression because it does not require eggs or milk... also a great cake for those with milk or egg allergies. Thanks for the chocolate chip idea.. double the chocolate... never have too much chocolate!

I am keen to try this recipe, however, could your please explain what the 'c' is...I live in Australia and we use the metric system...eg. grams and ml's...thanks in anticipation of an answer....Might make these over the weekend.

Lisar said...

Lisa again....all I can say is derrr....I think I have just realised that the 'c' is for cup..LOL..please confirm if I am on the right track....thanks

Hi Lisar - yes, c. is for cup. Sorry for the confusion!

I love this! So easy and quick, and it is so chocolaty. I adapted it so that I could eat it (I have a gluten/wheat intolerance) and used gluten free flour. Still turned out great. Thanks for enabling me to indulge :)

We love this snack cake in our house! My college roommate used to make it during finals week. Now I make a gluten free version for my egg, dairy, wheat and peanut allergic son.
