Crazy cake

I love this yummy chocolate cake! It's super moist and dense - and also (mostly) allergen-free! Most of you know that Abby had soy and dairy allergies as a baby. Thankfully, she's outgrown them - but for her first birthday, I made this cake. To avoid soy, I used a palm-oil based shortening to make icing...but that's another story. :) Here's the recipe for crazy cake....


3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp white vinegar
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup canola oil
2 cups water


Combine dry ingredients in large bowl. Mix to remove lumps.

Add liquid ingredients and mix until smooth. Pour into 9x13 pan.

Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes, till toothpick comes out clean.
