  • 2 cups (400 g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (120 mL) vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp(10 mL) vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) salt
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) baking powder
  • 2 cups (240 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (50 g) powdered sugar


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer with paddle attachment, beat the cocoa, granulated sugar and oil on medium speed.
  2. Reduce the speed to low and add 1 egg at a time until combined. Mix in the remaining ingredients in the order listed, except for the powdered sugar.
  3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
