You only need five ingredients to make this mix! And after you make it I highly suggest making my five ingredient chocolate cake or five ingredient chocolate mug cake.
To make this cake you need:
- Gluten free all purpose flour
- Cocoa powder
- Baking powder
- Butter (add in when you prepare the mix)
Stir together the dry ingredients and place in an airtight container or mason jar to store. The dry mix will store for several months.
To Prepare the Cake:
Add the dry mix, 4 tablespoons of softened butter, 1 cup water, ⅔ cup oil, 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract and 3 eggs mixing for 2-3 minutes until smooth. Pour into a greased 9x13 inch pan then bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. You can also divide and pour into two 8 inch circular pans to bake.
