and don't forget the dessert

OK so we have 2 important events coming up: Superbowl and Valentine’s Day. Here’s a cake that works for both. Just mix eveything in the pan. No bowl needed.

It’s fun to make and the little ones can help!

Wacky chocolate cake with buttercream frosting

Peg Bracken made this famous in her 1960 “I hate to cook” cookbook.

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon white vinegar

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup water


Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 8-9” pan.

Put dry ingredients in pan. Whisk to mix.

Make 3 wells in flour mixture.

Pour oil in one well, vinegar in another, and vanilla in the last well.

Pour water on top of everything and whisk until smooth, making sure to get dry ingredients out of corners.

Bake 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
