Start by throwing all your dry ingredients into your greased cake pan. Mix them around and try to get out the lumps.


Then add the vinegar, vanilla, and oil.


Now dump the cold water on top. Everything should look good and messy.


You need to mix everything together. I used a whisk to achieve a smoother batter.


Your crazy cake goes in the oven for 30 minutes at 350°. It’s done when a knife comes out clean, or the top springs back to the touch.


You can top this with anything you’d like. It goes great with powdered sugar and fruit. I used a chocolate buttercream icing, and it was just perfect!
