Serves 10 | Prep Time 10 minutes | Cook Time 35 minutes


3 cup flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup sugar

1 cup vegetable oil
2 Tbsp. white vinegar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease and flour 2 9" round cake pans (or 1 9 X 13 inch cake pan).

In a large bowl, mix flour, soda, salt, cocoa, and sugar until well combined.

Make a 'well' in the center of the flour mixture. Add the oil, vinegar, vanilla, and water into the well.

Mix the batter with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes.

Pour batter evenly into the prepared pan.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until cake tests done.

Cool cakes slightly in the pans; remove cakes and continue to cool on wire racks.

Top and fill with your favorite frosting, or use Carol's Easy Chocolate Frosting recipe in this book.

Another recipe from my husband's Aunt Carol. She loved to cook and bake and collect recipes. I like this recipe because everything goes into one bowl. This is a good chocolate cake with a nice texture. There are no eggs or milk in this interesting cake.
