I promised some friends that I would blog this recipe. It is my favorite chocolate cake recipe of all time. Very moist. I actually got the recipe when I was in Colombia, SA. It requires no refrigerated ingredients and therefore, is good for missionaries living without.
3 cups flour
2 cups of sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 teas. baking soda
Mix above ingredients (I ususally sift them), then mix below ingredients and then mix together. You can add chocolate chips if you like.
2 tablespoons vinigar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups water
2/3 cup of oil
Mix very well. It always looks too wet/runny, but it's not! Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes. For a 9X13 or two 8 or 9 inch round pans. Yummmmm!
And here is a link to a contest I entered in honor of my mom. One of our "angels" in Cleveland-a man who goes by Captain Dennis and who did so much for our family told me of yet another way he gives back. He said he enters lots of radio and other free contests and then gives the prize or half the money to charities. I thought this was a pretty neat idea and one that I would try...so here's to my mama....and to the good captain!
