I love making desserts -even more than I love cooking meals. There's something special and festive about preparing candy, even if there is no special occasion to celebrate. Sometimes, though, you just need to have something sweet, so complex recipees won't work for you in this case. Here, I will write down the easiest cake recipee I know, that's both simple and delicious!


  • 1 cup of sugar

  • ¾ cup of corn oil

  • 1,5 spoonful of vinegar

  • 1,5 spoonful of brandy

  • 1 vanilla

  • 1 pinch of salt

  • Zest of 2 oranges

  • 2/3 cup. orange juice

  • 1 teaspoon of soda

  • 1 cup of water

  • Half a cup of cocoa

  • 3 cups of flour (the classic one that's for any use)

  • 3 spoonfuls of baking powder

Put the sugar, the oil, the vinegar, the brandy, zest of the organges, the vanilla and the salt in a bowl. Mix it well with a spoon until the sugar has melted. Put the baking soda with the orange juice, so that they are mixed and then add them to the bowl. Have them above the bowl when you are mixing them, because the baking soda creates a foam. Then, add the water.

After that, sieve the flour, the baking powder and the cocoa. Then, add them to the bowl. Do not mix it too much.

Take a cake pan and put some oil into it. Then, put the mix inside of it. Bake it in the air of the oven at 150-160oC for 30 minutes. Leave it inside its pan for around ten minutes and then you can take it out, using a little knife on the edges. You can put some melted chocolate on top of it, or serve it with some sour cream or some ice cream! Of course, it's just as delicious if you eat it plain.
