Chocolate Cake

3 cups flour

2 cups sugar

6 tablespoons baking cocoa

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

¾ cup oil

2 tablespoons vinegar

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 cups cold water

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix flour, sugar, cocoa, soda and salt in ungreased 9-by-13-inch pan. Make three depressions. Into one, pour the oil; into the second, pour the vinegar; into the third, pour the vanilla. Pour the cold water over all, and mix very well with a fork until completely combined. Bake 45-60 minutes (test with toothpick).

Also makes awesome cupcakes! Just mix it all up in a bowl, and make about 26 cupcakes. Bake 20 minutes.
