This is an amazing, moist, chocolate cake! Our good friend, Tim shared this wonderful recipe with us and it has been a favorite since. 🙂
- 3 cups flour
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/2 cup baking cocoa
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 TBSP. vinegar
- 2 cups warm water
- 2/3 cup oil
Mix dry ingredients together. Make 3 wells. Put vanilla in one, vinegar in another and oil in third one. Then pour water over all and mix by hand. Bake in a greased 9×13″ pan @350 degrees.
- A Cream cheese frosting is really great on this recipe!
Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe:
- 1/2 cup of butter (1 stick), room temperature
- 8 oz of cream cheese (1 package), room temperature
- 2 – 3 cups of powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla (orange or almond) extract
With an electric mixer, mix the butter and cream cheese together, about 3 minutes on medium speed until very smooth. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl to ensure even mixing. Add the vanilla extract and mix. Slowly add the powdered sugar. Keep adding until you get to desired sweetness and thickness. Either spread on with a blunt knife or spatula, or spoon into a piping bag to decorate your cake.
Tip: To make your cake frosting really smooth looking, sprinkle a little water over the spread frosting and use a blunt knife to make it smooth. 🙂
