Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C (320 degrees F).

In one of your bowls, combine the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa, sugar and baking powder)

In a separate bowl, whisk the milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until combined then pour the mixture into a greased cake tin

Be careful not to overmix , otherwise the cake will become dense!
