3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 (half) cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoons salt
1/2 (half) cup oil
2 Tablespoons vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups cold water
Mix all ingredients in one bowl until well blended. Pour into greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 - 40 minutes or until pick comes out clean. There is enough batter to fill one 13x9 pan OR 2 rounds OR 2 squares. There isn't a typo in the ingredients...there are NO eggs in this recipe.
The Best Frosting Ever
1/4 cup flour
1 cup milk
1/2 (half) cup or one stick of butter, softened
1/2 (half) cup Crisco (shortening) I used butter flavor
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a medium sauce pan, whisk together the flour and the milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thick. Remove from heat and cool completely.
In a larger bowl, mix together the butter, Crisco and the sugar. Beat on high for 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes, add the cooled flour/milk mixture and the vanilla. Beat until fully mixed together. Refrigerate if not ready to frost your cake.
Enjoy both these recipes.
