Wacky Cake a.k.a. Chocolate Cake

This by far is the easiest and quickest cake there is to make.  If you want to make a cake this is it.  It is also great because the only dishes you really get dirty are your measuring spoons.

3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
6 tablespoons cocoa
2 teaspoons baking soda
pinch of salt
12 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons pure vanilla
2 cups of cold water
confectioners sugar, if desired

Place the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a 9 x 13 inch baking pan.  Make 2 holes in the dry ingredients and pour the following into these holes: oil, vinegar, and vanilla.  The pour the water over top.  Stir the mixture in the pan until mixed (make sure you get the corners) and bake in the same pan.  Place in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven and bake for 30-35 minutes.

I made my own confectioners sugar by adding regular sugar to a blender and blend until powdery smooth.  The sugar will only be good for a short period of time like this because it doesn't contain any starches that will prevent it from caking.
