Description

The best (and easiest) freaking chocolate cake in the world! Mix in the pan, bake, frost and devour.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Flour
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • ⅓ cups Cocoa Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 cups Cold Water
  • ⅔ cups Canola Or Vegetable Oil
  • 3 teaspoons Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Spray a 9×13 inch pan with baking spray.

Add the dry ingredients (flour through salt) directly into the pan and stir to combine with a fork. Pour in the wet ingredients and mix until smooth and all of the dry ingredients have been incorporated. Be sure to spread the batter into the corners.

Place in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the middle.

Remove pan from oven and set it on a cooling wrack. Once cooled, frost cake as you wish. I like to use chocolate frosting from a tub. Don’t judge me.

Enjoy!

My mom made this cake quite often back in the 60’s. I’m so glad you brought it back to my attention! It’s so delicious warm out of the oven.

One of my all-time favorite cakes! My Mom used to make it when I was a kid and we always called it Whacky Cake. I love the fact that you can make this cake even when you don’t have eggs or butter on hand. Thanks for bringing back a classic recipe and some great memories:)

Yep – Best and quickest chocolate cake ever! Started making this cake in 4-H when I was 9 years old. Just made it last week.
