Veggie Soc makes chocolate/chilli cake

I've not been seeming to find as much time to bake cakes recently, but we did make a particularly yummy one at Veggie Soc (the vegetarian food society at the university) fairly recently. We were cooking food along a Tex/Mex (the Texan version of Mexican food) theme and thought a chilli cake would go well. In all the excitement of eating the cake, I forgot to take a photo, but here's the recipe...
  • Pre-heat the oven to 165°C/Gas Mark 3.
  • Mix together 185g flour, 200g sugar, 90g cocoa powder, 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda, 1/4 tsp chilli powder and 1/4 tsp salt.
  • Add 250ml cold water, 65ml vegetable oil, 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar and 1 tbsp vanilla extract and stir in until smooth.
  • Pour into a pre-greased cake tin and bake for about 30 minutes.
  • It won't be long before the cake goes stale, so eat it quickly!
