Easy, Easy, Easy One Bowl Chocolate Cake recipe that is mixed in one-bowl and covered in a DELICIOUS FUDGE ICING! 

The only directions that were given for this cake recipe from a cookbook were to “put all ingredients in bowl and whip for 5 minutes. Bake at 350°F”. That was it! The fudge icing is AMAZING! So that is a must-have addition to this One Bowl Chocolate Cake!

Substitutions: If you don’t have buttermilk you can sour the milk by adding 2 tbsp of vinegar to the amount required instead (that’s what I did when I made this.) You may also try substituting soft butter for shortening or even vegetable oil.

CHOCOLATE CAKE:

  • 4 TBSP cocoa
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup water (I used boiling)
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla

FUDGE ICING:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa (unsweetened Hershey’s brand)
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Directions:

1. In a large bowl whisk the dry ingredients together and add the wet ingredients; beat for 5 minutes.

2. Pour into a well-greased Pyrex 13 x 9-inch baking pan and bake at 350° F for 20-25 minutes or until done.

3. To make icing: place cocoa, sugar, margarine, and milk into a medium saucepan. Boil 2 minutes then remove from heat and add vanilla. Cool to desired consistency (about 5-10 minutes) then spread onto cake quickly before it gets too hard. Icing should be smooth and firm when done.

4. Keep the cake stored at room temperature.
