All Time Favorite Chocolate Wonder Cake

The following cake recipe is a favorite in my family. For my sisters and I, it was always the first recipe you got to try solo!! :) It is sure a great recipe for kids because, with no eggs, they can lick that bowl to their hearts desire!! This is the cake I always requested growing up for my birthday (and my husband bakes it for me still) and my kids always request for their birthdays.

Chocolate Wonder Cake

3 C Flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
6 Tbl cocoa
2 cups sugar

3/4 C oil
2 Tbl vinegar
2 Tbl vanilla
2 C boiling water (We always believed it had to be boiling, but warm works just fine!)

Mix dry ingredients. Make 3 wells. Put oil in one, vinegar in one and vanilla in one. Pour water over top. Stir completely. Put in 9 X 13 and bake at 350 F for about 50 min or until cake tester comes out clean. When cooled, frost or simply sprinkle confectioners sugar on top.

That looks very good! I'm going to try it the next time I bake a cake as my husband doesn't care much for the recipe I've been using.

Hello, Karen. Thought I'd post a follow-up comment about your recipe to let you know that I finally made it last night. It was delicious!!! The whole family loved it, and I plan to keep using this recipe.

Thanks for posting it!
