How to prepare cocoa water cake

  1. Place the water and sugar in a bowl. Work the mixture until the sugar has dissolved, then add the oil and 1 pinch of salt.
  2. Now add the sifted flour with the baking powder, vanilla and cocoa . It is very important that the latter is well sifted or lumps will form. Mix with the help of an electric whisk to incorporate air and make the dough swell.
  3. At this stage, you can decide whether to add some aromas . We will prepare it in the basic version, but you can flavor it with cinnamon or orange zest if you like.
  4. Pour the mixture into a springform pan with a diameter of 18-20 cm lined with baking paper or sprayed with the appropriate remover. Cook the chocolate cake without butter at 180°C for 40 minutes .
  5. Let it cool before serving, finishing with icing sugar if desired.
