  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • 1 tbsp white vinegar

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ cup sugar

  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 ½ tsp baking soda

  • ½ tsp non-iodized/non-sea salt vegetable cooking spray

  • 2 tsp powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.

  2. Combine the first four ingredients in a large bowl.

  3. Combine flour and the next four ingredients in a separate bowl, making sure to stir well.

  4. Add the flour mixture to the water mixture and beat at low speed with an electric mixer until well blended. Then, beat for an additional one minute at high speed.
