Ingredients

  • 225g All-Purpose Flour

  • 200g Brown Sugar

  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

  • 1 teaspoon White Vinegar

  • 5 tablespoons Vegetable Oil (any be creative)

  • 250 ml Whole Fat Milk - Optional: Water or Plant-Based Milk

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Mixed Essence/Extract - Optional: Any Flavor Essence/Extract

  • Option for Spices: 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon for one spice of choice or 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon for two or more spices

  • Options for additional ingredients: 60g Chocolate Chips or Nuts or 3 tablespoons Cocoa Powder (unsweetened)

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and place a rack on the top shelf.

Into an 8 x 12 baking dish, mix together all dry ingredients.

Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients and gently mix thoroughly to combine.

Place the dish into the preheated oven in the middle of the top shelf.

At the 20-minute mark, perform the toothpick test by poking the center of the cake with a toothpick: Remove it and if the tip is clean, the cake is finished. If there is still cake batter, continue baking for another 5-10 minutes.

Once the cake is ready, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool for 10-15 minutes before cutting and serving. Best when paired with a refreshing Watermelon Smoothie.

Chocolate version: Add 3 tablespoons cocoa powder to dry ingredients in Step 2. Chocolate chips or nuts: add 60g after Step 3. Spices: add with dry ingredients in Step 2 or infuse the spices into liquid of choice.
