1 1/2 cup all-pupose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons macadamia oil
1 cup cold water
2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 tablespoon apple cider
Icing sugar (optional, for dusting)


Serves 8


1. Heat the oven to 180°C.
2. Mix together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, sugar and salt. Sift. In a separate bowl, whisk together the water, oil , vanilla and vinegar.
3. Whisk together the wet and dry mixtures. If lumpy, whisk until smooth, or pour through a strainer into a bowl and break up the lumps as they pass through.
4. Mix again and pour into a greased 9-inch round cake pan. Tap the edge of the pan against the edge of the counter to pop any air bubbles. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the top springs back when pressed gently.
5. Cool before removing from the pan and dust with icing sugar if desired.
