No matter how many different kinds of tasty cakes I made when my children were small, they always begged me to make the simplest basic cake you can prepare with just one bowl. It’s one of the best kinds of cakes because it’s so easy to make – it’s quick and always comes out perfectly. All you do is pour all the ingredients in a bowl, mix, and then pour the batter into a pan and bake it. Within minutes, your entire house will smell like heaven.

Nowadays, whenever my son, Gal, informs me he’ll be coming home soon from his army base, I immediately begin rummaging through my fridge and pantry to check what ingredients I have so that I can bake a cake he loves – no fruit, just chocolate and lots of love. I always sprinkle the cake with powdered sugar before serving and sometimes I cover it with chocolate icing. This type of cake usually comes out dense and solid, and doesn’t crumble easily. For best results, make sure you don’t over-mix the batter.
