Small Batch Chocolate Cake
A quick and easy ½ size cake recipe. Perfect for your family or a small group.
Preheat oven to 350' F.
In a medium size bowl, mix all dry ingredients together well.
Heat the milk to scalding either in the microwave or a small pan, then pour into dry ingredients and mix gently but well.
Beat egg and mix in oil and vanilla then add to cake batter and mix in well.
Prepare an 8" or 9" round cake pan (I use a non-stick pan) by greasing lightly with margarine (or Crisco if you have it) and then dusting with cocoa powder.
Pour batter into pan and bake 30 min, testing for doneness at end and adjust baking time as needed. (My oven is on the cooler side and took 31 minutes)
