Chocolate cake is my favorite cake. Hands down. I like it fudgy Chocolate Fudge Cake, I like it layered with dulce de leche Chocolate & Dulce De Leche Cake. I also love an easy chocolate cake recipe like this one: no mess, done in under 15 minutes (prepping the ingredients included!), ready for any occasion. Versatile, easy, delicious. I hope you like it too.

How to make one bowl chocolate cake?
Making this chocolate olive oil cake is super easy. All you must do is add the ingredients to a bowl in a certain order, then transfer to a greased and floured cake pan and bake!
- Using a whisk, mix the milk, vinegar, and egg.
- Add the oil while whisking at the same time to incorporate.
- Then add the sugar and mix it in. Followed by the sifted flour.
- Finally add the cacao, baking soda and salt and whisk until there are no more visible lumps.
- Transfer to cake pan and bake until set. About 45 minutes.
That is, it! Probably longer to read the recipe than to make it.
- Make sure to butter and flour your cake pan.
- This recipe calls for a 500 g loaf cake pan (20 cm long, 8 cm wide).
- If you use a bigger loaf cake pan, make sure to double the recipe.
- You can also use a Bundt cake pan or a regular cake pan.
- Do not open the oven until the loaf has grown nicely. About 40 minutes.
- To check if the cake is ready, insert and skewer or a knife at the center. If it comes out dry, it means it is ready!
- Unmold immediately after you remove from the oven. Let cool down on a wire rack at room temperature.

This cake freezes splendidly. Let it cool down and wrap in plastic wrap twice. Transfer to the freezer. It keeps for a month.
