Wacky Chocolate Cake

I started making this cake way back when Emily was still allergic to eggs and dairy.  It is such a moist cake and everyone enjoys it.  I thought I'd share it here.

Wacky Chocolate Cake

3 cups of flour
2 cups of sugar
2/3 cup of cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking soda
2/3 cup of vegetable oil
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cup of cold water
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar

Mix together dry ingredients.  Add oil, vanilla and cold water and beat on medium speed until well mixed.  Add 2 tsp. of vinegar and mix well.  Pour into a grease and floured 9 x 13" pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.  Frost as desired.

Egg, Dairy and Nut Free

For this one I made a simple white frosting, though I've also done a chocolate fudge frosting with it too.

3 cups confectioner sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla
3-5 Tbsp. milk

Mix first three ingredients together and then add milk, one tablespoon at a time until you get the desired consistency.
