  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1½ cups cold water (or cold brewed coffee)

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda and salt.
  4. In a large bowl, add eggs, sugar, water, and oil and beat until combined. Gradually add flour mixture, beating on low, until combined. Stir in melted chocolate.
