A quick and easy recipe for 1 Pan Fudge Cake takes five minutes to prepare and 25 minutes to cook. It makes one 9- by 13-inch cake with 10 to 12 servings.
To make Food.com's one-pan fudge cake, you need 1 1/2 cups of sugar, 1/2 cup of cocoa powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda, 2 cups of flour and 3/4 cup of vegetable oil. You also need 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla essence or extract, 1 1/2 teaspoons of vinegar, 1 1/2 cups of water and 3/4 teaspoon of salt.
To start making the one-pan fudge cake, first preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, sift the sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, flour and salt in an ungreased 9- by 13-inch baking pan. Combine the vegetable oil, vanilla essence or extract, vinegar and water with the dry ingredients in the same pan. Stir it until the mixture is thoroughly blended. Put the cake into the oven and bake it for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Frost with your choice of frosting. The cake is very moist, so take care not to tear it when removing it from the pan.
