Many recipes for chocolate cake are rather complicated, requiring boiling water, melted butter, or other special ingredients and techniques. This is a simple mix-and-bake recipe that should produce acceptable results.

Preheat your oven to 350oF.

In a large mixing bowl, mix the following dry ingredients (sifting them together if the flour is not pre-sifted):

In another container, mix the following:

Pour it into the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly with an electric mixer or a wire whip and spoon.

Pour into a greased 9 X 9 X 2 glass baking dish. (The use of a metal baking pan or containers of other sizes will affect the baking temperature and time.)

Bake at 350oF for 40 minutes.

The resulting cake requires some kind of frosting or topping. Canned vanilla frosting will do.
