Makes one moist, delicious 9-inch cake
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3-4 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon white vinegar
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup water
Preheat the oven to 350.
Sift or whisk the dry ingredients together.
Make 3 wells in the resulting mound, and put the vanilla in
one, vinegar in another, and oil in the third. Pour the water over and mix it
on up, as little as possible to get most of the lumps out.
Transfer to a greased and floured pan and bake. Check after 25
minutes; it might need another few depending on the pan.
