Prompt: Chocolate cake recipe


1 cup (220 grams) all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup (180 ml) unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 cup (120 ml) vegetable oil

2 eggs, at room temperature

1 cup (240 ml) sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup (240 ml) semisweet chocolate chips


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour one 9-inch cake pan.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

3. In a large bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, oil, eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.

4. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until a toothpick or cake tester comes out clean when inserted into the center of the cake. Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
