baking powder - 1 1/2 tsp
salt - 1 tsp
egg - 2

Baking Idea: substitute 2 nestle drinking chocolate powder mixed with 1/4 cup chocolate chips and 2tsp instant coffee. This mixture helps give it a different delicious taste. 

Preheat oven to 350 deg F.
Grease and flour 2 pans of 9 inch size.
Sift flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, salt, together. Sift twice to get a fluffy porous cake. Put it in a big mixing bowl.

Using an electric mixer beat the milk, egg, sugar, vanilla, vegetable oil, (chocolate chips if any)  for a minute. Add it to the dry ingredients in the big mixing bowl.  Mix well.
Bring 1 cup water to boil. Pour in to the mixing bowl. Mix well.
Pour in to baking pans and bake for 40 - 45 mins.
Let cool completely before slicing.
Time to eat cake. 

This recipe will make 2 cakes of 9x9 inch squares or two 9 inch round cakes or one 9 x13 cake.
Before baking,  the cake batter may seem to be very thin and runny. But the cake will come out perfect.

Serve the cake iced ... any chocolate icing will do. If you choose not to ice then perhaps you may want to pierce the top of the cake and pour a mix of 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup water over the top of the cake. This will help keep the cake moist and delicious
