Wacky Chocolate Cake

`Today is my mom's birthday and I decided to make her a recipe from my 9th grade home economics class...Wacky Chocolate Cake. It is a perfect recipe for kids to make - no messy bowls to clean up.

Use an ungreased 9x13 cake pan.

Mix dry ingredients into the cake pan. Yes! Right in the baking pan.
2 c. sugar
3c. sifted flour
1t. salt
2 t. baking soda
1/4 c. & 2 Tbls. baking cocoa

Mix these ingredients very well with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Then make 3 holes in the cake mix. Put each ingredient into the holes as follows:
Hole #1 with...2 Tbls. distilled vinegar
Hole #2 with...2 teas. vanilla
Hole #3 with...2/3 cup vegetable or canola oil

THEN...Pour 2 cups of water over all the ingredients. MIX WELL! It should look like this...

Using a paper towel or napkin, wipe the inside edges of the cake pan so the cake is presentable after baking.

Bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees.

This cake will be topped with White 7-minute Frosting per Mom's request - AND IT IS HER BIRTHDAY so she gets to choose.

Have a great day Mom. I love you!
