How to Use:

Add from your pantry:

  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups boiling water (1 ½ cups for cupcakes)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (optional)

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F

Prepare two 8 inch cake pans by lining with baking paper and spray edges lightly with oil. Not using paper will likely lead to the cake sticking to the pan as it's very moist. If you do not have baking paper, use a springform pan and grease and coat with flour and cocoa. In a large bowl, add eggs, oil and vanilla (optional). Mix at medium speed for 2 minutes with a whisk/mixer until slightly frothy. Add in mix. Mix will be dry and crumbly. Stir in the boiling water last, mix well until lumps dissolve. Batter will be thin, this is the secret to super moistness. Pour batter evenly into the prepared pans. Bake for 30-35 minutes in the preheated oven until the cake tests done with a toothpick or a knife pulling out mainly clean. Remove from oven, leave in the pans for 10 minutes. Remove cake and leave to cool completely on a wire rack before icing.

For Cupcakes: Line cupcake pan with paper liners and fill 2/3 full with batter. Bake cupcakes for 18-22 minutes. Cool completely before frosting. See our website for icing and additional recommendations.
