I have been making this cake since I was married 50 years ago. It is one of the best chocolate cakes I have eaten and very easy to make. But what makes it “over the top” good is to frost it with my mother-in law’s One Minute Chocolate Icing.
This is supposed to be mixed together right in the cake pan, but I usually mix it in my mixer. I would suggest, though, that after you mix in the vinegar, you get the cake in the oven immediately.
- 3 cups sifted flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 6 tablespoons cocoa
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups cold water
- 10 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Combine first 5 ingredients in mixing bowl. Then add rest of ingredients in order given. Put in ungreased 9″ x 13″ pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.
