This is another recipe that doesn’t use butter. I only had a rectangular tin but next time I would make it in a smaller square tin so that it was a bit thicker.
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup boiling water
2 large eggs
2 cups brown sugar
1 1/3 cups plain flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
Oil and flour a square baking tin.
In a mixing boil, combine the cocoa and baking powder and stir in 1/3 cup oil. Add the boiling water and mix well. Whisk in the sugar, eggs and another 1/3 cup of oil.
Stir in the flour, vanilla extract and salt and mix well.
Pour into the baking tin and bake in the oven (180ºC) for 35-40 minutes.
