I know... I suck...
I have done nothing with my life but work...
Ugh... the life I live...
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa(1/4 cup lemon juice)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla & 1/4 tsp lemon extract & 1/4 tsp orange extract
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/3 cup vegetable, peanut or light olive oil
1 cup cold water, milk or chocolate milk
Preheat oven to 350°F.
This cake is so easy and fun to make that you'll be tempted to save on dishes by preparing it in a disposable 8 or 9 inch square pan.
There are no mixing bowls to worry about, since the cake is mixed directly in the pan so that you can make it more often.
Grease the pan well with Crisco or vegetable shortening.
Measure the flour, sugar,
cocoaand salt and baking soda into the pan. Using a fork or whisk, stir all ingredients until no streaks remain and everything is well combined.
Scoop out four holes or valleys in the flour mixture. Pour the vinegar into the first hole; the vanilla, lemon extract, & orange extract into the second hole, lemon juice into the third hole and the oil into the fourth.
Pour the water or milk over everything and stir with a fork or whisk until everything is well blended. Don't forget the corners of the pan and the edges!
Bake 35-40 minutes. Cool 5 minutes and cut into squares. Serve while still warm with ice cream or Cool Whip.
This cake is as quick and simple to prepare as a mix, but much more economical and without the long list of chemical ingredients.
