Honestly the old recipes are sometimes the very best. This cake doesn’t take any fancy ingredients, everything is sitting in your pantry already. Takes less than 10 minutes to stir together and 25 minutes to bake.
Makes a 8×8 cake and it is so moist that no frosting is needed. Just dust the top with powdered sugar and call it finished.
Don’t let the title scare you off. Can’t taste the vinegar at all. So what does the vinegar do? Vinegar reacts with the baking soda to create a moist and tender crumb.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 Tablespoons cocoa
1 Tablespoon vinegar
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1 cup warm water
6 Tablespoon oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cocoa in a medium bowl.
Add vinegar, vanilla, water and oil to the dry mix. Stir everything together. The batter will be runny.
Spray an 8×8 baking dish and pour batter in baking dish.
Bake for 25 minutes.
Let cool and dust with powdered sugar.
