Crazy Chocolate Cake

It’s National Chocolate Cake Day so whip up this wonderfully moist chocolate cake that’s so rich it doesn’t need frosting. Grab the kids and make it tonight. It’s fun and easy to assemble with a unique no-bowl mixing technique. And it gets even wackier because the recipe calls for vinegar and no eggs. It’s crazy delicious!

Crazy Chocolate Cake
No bowl required. Mix ingredients together in a 9”x 13” baking pan. No need to grease the pan. Preheat oven to 350°.

3 cups all-purpose flour
4 tablespoons baking cocoa
2 cups white granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
Sift flour, cocoa, granulated sugar and baking soda into baking pan.

Make 3 wells in flour and add:
2 tablespoons vanilla
2/3 cup salad oil
4 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 cups water

Mix well with a fork. Bake for approximately 35 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar or frost as desired. Cake stays moist and fresh for several days. NO EGGS REQUIRED.
Quick Fluffy Frosting
1 cup white granulated sugar
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla or flavoring of choice
1 egg white

Dump all ingredients into glass or stainless mixing bowl. Add ½ cup boiling water. Start mixer and mix until the frosting will stand in peaks.

Both of these recipes can be successfully cut in half, although a half-size baking pan for the cake might be a challenge to find.
