Number of Servings: 10


    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 cups sugar
    1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    2 teaspoons cinnamon
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or chili powder
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
    1/4 cup olive oil
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    1 cup cold water


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, cinnamon, baking soda, cayenne, and salt. Make two small wells in the mixture. In one, pour in the vinegar. In the other, pour in the vanilla extract. Pour cold water over everything. Stir until moistened and a only a little lumpy.

Pour batter into an 8-inch pan. Bake for 30 or 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then carefully pry out and finish cooling on a wire rack.
