Wacky Cake

Rick used to make this cake with his mom when he was a kid. This was also a recipe I made in Jr High Home Ec class.  There's little mess (unless the mixing gets crazy) and clean up is a cinch since it's mixed and baked in one dish.

Wacky Cake

In a 9x13 baking dish combine:
   3 cups flour
   1 ½ cups sugar
   6 tablespoons Hershey’s cocoa
   1 teaspoon baking soda
   1 teaspoon salt

Make three wells in the powdered mixture and add:
   ¾ cup oil
   2 cup water
   2 tablespoons vinegar
   2 teaspoons vanilla

Stir until well mixed. (It helps to use a glass dish so you can check to see that all the powdered ingredients are mixed in completely or mix in a mixing bowl.)

Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or test with toothpick.

Frost with butter cream frosting and mini chocolate chips (opt.) or frost with chocolate butter cream frosting.
NOTE:  Pictures show an 8x8 baking dish. Recipe is for 9x13 baking dish but can be cut in half.
