Chocolate cake reference

This was Nigella Lawson's recipe, but that page currently doesn't include the ingredient amounts, so I'm reproducing it here. This was a test ahead of J3's birthday, so she helped. Since it seems successful, we will be making it again and I will include more pictures of the process.

Heat oven to 170 deg C
  • 3/4 cup + 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup water (boiling)
6 tbsp cocoa powder
COMBINE into a thick paste and allow to cool (doesn't need to come fully to room temp)
2 tsp vanilla extract
ADD to cocoa paste and stir

2/3 cup olive oil
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
COMBINE in mixing bowl and mix on high (directions said 5 minutes, we mixed for 2-3)

COMBINE wet ingredients and mix thoroughly

COMBINE dry mix and wet just to incorporate together.

Use small amount of oil to grease a 9 inch baking pan.
Pour in batter and bake for 45 minutes (I rotated the cake every 10 minutes).

Another dessert reference to store, unfortunately dairy: Caramel Sauce
