Unbelievable Chocolate Cake


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with nonstick baking spray.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil and egg until the mixture is frothy and thick.
3. Add the vanilla, brown sugar, and sweetener. Beat with a whisk for 2 more minutes until the mixture is thick and smooth and the sugars have been thoroughly incorporated into the mixture. Add the buttermilk and continue to mix.
4. t the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cocoa powder and stir into the wet ingredients. Whisk vigorously for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the batter is smooth. Pour the hot water into the batter and whisk one more time until the batter is again nice and smooth. The batter will be thin.
5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and tap the pan on the counter to level the surface and to help remove any bubbles.
6. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until the center springs back when touched or a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Do not overbake. Cool the cake on a wire rack. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
