Featured ingredient: French Roast Coffee 10 oz. Bag Ground

  • 2 2/3 C. all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2 tsp. baking powder, divided
  • 1/2 C. sugar, divided

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 6 Tbsp. vegetable oil, divided

  • Cocoa powder (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  4. Pour in milk, vanilla, 3 tablespoons oil and 1 egg.
  5. Stir wet ingredients into dry until the batter comes together and no large lumps remain, about 25-30 seconds.
