  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • ⅓ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup boiling water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F . Grease and flour a 9×13 inch pan.

In a large bowl, stir together the cocoa and baking soda. Add 1/3 cup vegetable oil and boiling water. Mix until well blended and thickened. Stir in the sugar, eggs, and remaining 1/3 cup oil. Finally, add the flour, vanilla and salt; mix just until all of the flour is absorbed. Spread evenly into the prepared pan.

Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool before cutting into squares.
