Another recipe. And again this is one I grew up with my Mom making (This recipe card is actually in my Mom's handwriting). Yeah Mom!
Reasons I love this recipe - it's easy, it uses only one pan (no bowls for mixing), it's moist, and it's fun!
1 1/2 c flour (Note: I have not tried using 1/2 whole wheat, but will next time I make the cake)
3 tb cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
1 c sugar
1 tsp baking soda
Sift above ingredients in 8x8 pan. Make 3 wells.
5 TB melted butter/margarine/oil (I wonder if applesauce would work to decrease the fat)
1 tsp vanilla
1 TB vinegar
1 C water
Mix butter, vanilla and vinegar in separate bowl. Note: I normally use a glass measuring cup to melt my butter and then add the vanilla and vinegar to the cup (less dishes to wash).
Pour into those 3 wells you made.
Pour water over top of everything and stir.
Bake in ungreased pan at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Another reason I love this cake is because I don't feel so guilty eating it - it doesn't need any frosting! And it's perfectly delicious still warm - no waiting for it to cool.
But I realized I need to do some experimenting for replacing some ingredients as I typed out the recipe. Guess my family will be guinea pigs next FHE. Hope it turns out yummy!
