Becca, here’s a favorite in my family. The hotshots love it… but they seem to love everything. That secret ingredient is a stumper, I’ve never had anyone guess it. Robbi
Norwegian Chocolate Cake
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
6 Tbs baking cocoa
3/4 cup oil
2 cups cold water
2 Tbs white vinegar
1 Tbs vanilla
Can reduce the fat further and use only 1/4 cup oil and substitute 1/2 cup applesauce.
Mix dry stuff, mix wet stuff separately, add wet to dry -little by little- with lots of stirring. It’s fairly wet and very sticky when you’re done. Pour batter into well-greased bundt cake pan to prevent the sticky stuff sticking, bake at 350 for 35-40 min. In Norway on the farm they did this in square pans and topped it with strawberries and a rich fresh-whipped cream. I’ve also tried Kahlua or the glaze below. It gets hard fast.

Mocha Glaze
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbs baking cocoa
1/2 tsp decaf instant coffee (add into 
1-1 1/2 Tbs milk, of choice (regular, rice, soy)
1/4 tsp almond extract (or go wild and try peppermint or coconut)

Mix dry stuff but dissolve instant coffee into milk and add almond extract to that. Add wet to dry, adding 1-2 more tsp more milk if necessary.
