Wacky Cake


3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup baking cocoa
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 Tablespoons vinegar
3/4 cup Oil
2 cups water


Mix flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a 9×13 pan.
Make three holes in the flour mixture.
In one put vanilla; in another the vinegar, and in the third the oil.
Pour water over all and stir well.
Bake at 350 degrees F until it springs back to the touch or a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean – about 25 minutes.


1 stick margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup milk
powdered sugar

Melt margarine and add vanilla and milk. Add powdered sugar until desired consistency – loose but spreadable. This thickens as it cools.

**As a variation, I add a teaspoon of ground cinnamon to the flour mixture and add a cinnamon chocolate buttercream icing to the top.
