One Bowl Chocolate Cake

Here’s another recipe I’m transferring over from Facebook, just in time for International Chocolate Day! I made this awhile ago and it was delicious. You can pair it with your favourite frosting, just remember to add points. The points I’ve given below are for the cake only. You could also make this in a bundt pan, and dust with confectioners’ sugar if you want to keep it simple and not add additional calories. Adapted from


One Bowl Chocolate Cake
24 Servings | PointsPlus per Serving: 4

2 cups white sugar
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon chile powder
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup canola oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup boiling water

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour two nine inch round pans, or 1 bundt pan (if you don’t want 2 layers).

In a large bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and spices. Add the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla and mix for 2 minutes on medium. Stir in the boiling water last. This will be thin. Divide the batter between the two pans.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. It’ll take about 45 for a bundt. Cool for 10 minutes then turn out onto a wire wrack to cool completely before frosting.
