Prep Time:


Cooking Time:

30 to 45 minutes




  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1½ cups oil
  • 1¾ cups flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 6 tablespoons cocoa
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla
  • 4 cups walnuts


This is probably my most requested recipe. Guests can't believe it's so easy. There is no butter or chocolate to melt and not much to measure.

Beat eggs and sugar together until thick, frothy, and lemon colored. Add oil, then add flour salt and cocoa. Then add vanilla and walnuts. Pour into 15 X 13 inch jelly roll pan sprayed with Baker's Choice and bake for 30-45 minutes at 350°.

Note: There is no baking powder or baking soda in this recipe.
