This recipe I started making when I was probably 9 years old. My mom bought me an American Girl cook book and I was so amazed by it. This recipe appealed to me because it only uses one dish! You make the whole thing in one pan. It is also the tastiest, MOISTEST cake you will ever eat. Just good old fashioned baking over here.
- 1 1/2 cups of flour
- 1 cup of sugar
- 3 heaping teaspoons of unsweetened baking cocoa
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 6 tablespoons of vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon of white vinegar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla
- 1 cup of cold water
Mix flour, sugar, cocoa, soda and salt into the cake pan. Make 3 holes in dry mixture. In one hole pour vinegar, second hole vanilla and last hole oil. Carefully add cold water and mix everything with a fork. Cook at 350 for 35-40 minutes.
- 1 cup of powdered sugar
- 4 1/2 teaspoons of milk
- 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla
Blend and decorate cake :)
