Easiest cake recipe in the world!
For a chocolate cake, add 6 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
For a lemon or orange cake, add 1/4 cup juice and reduce water by 1/4 cup and add the zest of the fruit
For a vanilla cake, add 1 extra tablespoon vanilla flavoring
2 1/2 cups flour
2 cups sugar (add chocolate at this point for chocolate cake)
Sift together in a bowl and add:
1 cup oil (vegetable preferred)
Mix the above together well – it will be like a paste.
Sprinkle 2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda on top
POUR 2 cups HOT WATER on top, then 1 tsp vanilla
MIX BY HAND WITH A WISK UNTIL SMOOTH
Pour into 2 9″ greased and lined pans or a 9 x 12 greased and lined pan bake 375 for 20 – 25 minutes depending on your baking pans.
Test with a toothpick – remove from pan and let cool.
Frost with pink or red frosting, or top with fresh whipped cream and ruby-red strawberries!
