Save the Church of The Holy Innocents

I just signed the petition "Cardinal Timothy Dolan: Keep the Church of Holy Innocents Opened!" on

It's important. The Shrine of the Unborn was a Godsend when our little babies were born to Heaven. New York City needs this church, with this name with this charism.

¾ cup cocoa
½ teaspoon baking powder
2/3 cup oil (divided 1/3 + 1/3)
½ cup boiling water
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 1/3 cup flour*
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon salt

Stir cocoa and baking soda in a mixing bowl, add 1/3 cup of the oil and boiling water. Stir until thickened. Add sugar, the additional 1/3 cup oil and eggs, stir until smooth. Add vanilla, salt and flour, stir until combined. Pour into 13” x 9” pan sprayed with cooking oil, bake at 350* for 35-40 minutes.

*When I make these with garbanzo bean flour (1 1/3 cup), people eat them up, so I don’t tell them they are wheat and dairy free!
