My son's birthday is approaching, and I am without a mixer of any kind but I do have a wisk. Yesterday I managed to find cake pans, so that is a start. He would like a traditional chocolate cake with vanilla icing. I have baking powder, but I have been unable to find baking soda, so the recipe needs to have only baking powder. Does anyone have a recipe for a traditional chocolate cake that can be made by hand and doesn't require a ton of creaming of butter and sugar? Maybe a chocolate cake made with vegetable oil? The icing shouldn't be a problem since I have found confectioners sugar here in Cairo, and my husband brought vanilla when he came to visit. Thanks.
