Food Storage Cake

Betty Crocker calls it "Chocolate Snack Cake," but I'm re-dubbing it. All the ingredients are pantry standards, so you can file it away for the next natural disaster. I made it for a presidency meeting this weekend, and it was so moist and spongy and chocolate-y delish that it screamed to be blogged. Best of all, you can mix it by hand - minimal clean-up! My kind of cake.


1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 c. baking cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Mix: (I mixed it all in a 1 cup measuring cup so I didn't have to clean another bowl!)

1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. white or cider vinegar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Pour oil mixture and 1 cup of cold water into the flour mixture. Stir until well blended and pour into a greased 9" round pan or 8" square pan. Back 30 to 35 minutes at 350 degrees.

Make it for FHE tonight!

Hey, great recipe!
I had to come check out your blog and I love it. My CG served his mission in Brazil & can totally relate to what you write about. We would love to have lived there for a while, but it just didn't work out that way. The only problem I had with it is the BUGS!
