Prep Time 5 minutes


  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Sift all ingredients together in a big bowl and stir until uniform in color. Can be easily multiplied to make a big batch. Store in an airtight container.

  2. To make the mix into a plain chocolate cake, mix together 4.5 cups of the premade mix, with 1/2 cup melted butter (or substitute), 1/4 cup milk of any kind, 3 eggs (or chia eggs), and 2 tsp vanilla extract. Bake at 350 degrees until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.
