Cockeyed Cake


  • (This takes five and a half minutes to prepare but that includes hunting for the vinegar)
  • 1 1/2 C flour
  • 3 T cocoa
  • 1 tsp soda
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 5 T oil
  • 1 T vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 C cold water


  1. Put your sifted flour back in the sifter, add it to the cocoa, soda, sugar, and salt and sift this right into a greased square cake pan, about 9x9x2". now you make three groves or holes, in this dry mixture. Into one, pour the oil; into the next, the vinegar; into the next, the vanilla. Now pour the cold water over it all. You'll feel like you're making mud pies now, but beat it with a spoon until it's nearly smooth and you can't see the flour. Bake it at 350° for half an hour.
