Easy chocolate cake with a secret ingredient

April 22, 2013 § 11 Comments

The batter for this chocolate cake  can be mixed in one bowl.  The secret ingredient (tomato juice) adds extra nutrients, and cannot be tasted.  Dave and I had this for dinner last night, and it was delicious.  We didn’t make icing, and just sprinkled the cake with powdered sugar.
