GRANDMA’S WACKY CAKE
This is a Depression era cake recipe. It also goes by the name of Vinegar Cake. It is a perfect alternative for those who are allergic to milk or eggs.
Don’t let the ingredients fool you, give it a try. It is so good you don’t need frosting! Best served warm topped with a sprinkling of powdered sugar.
You will need an 8” x 8” pan, glass or metal. Do not grease the pan.
Sift the following ingredients into the baking pan and mix thoroughly:
1 ½ cups flour
1 cup granulated white sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup cocoa powder
Mound the mixed dry ingredients up and make 3 deep holes in the mound with a knife. Put one of the following ingredients in each hole in the order listed:
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon white vinegar
Pour 1 cup COLD water over all the ingredients and mix well with a spoon. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Hope you enjoy this family favorite!
