I recently got a copy of the Good Home Cookbook. It is full of homey, classic recipes, like Yankee Pot Roast, Franks and Beans, Ham and Noodle Casserole, Apple Dumplings, and Mexican Wedding Cakes. Of course, the first thing I made from it was a baked good!
Read on for the recipe!
One-Bowl Chocolate Snacking Cake from the Good Home Cookbook
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup cold coffee (I used decaf)
1 cup mayonnaise (Best Foods, of course! I bet the Trader Joe’s kind would work fine, though)
1/4 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour a 9″ square baking dish/brownie pan
2. In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients. Yup, you read that correctly–ALL the ingredients. Stir until well blended then pour into the prepared pan.
3. Bake 30 minutes or until a toothpick poked in the center comes out clean.
4. Cool pan on a cooling rack. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream or FROSTING.
