Wacky Cake & buttercream frosting Recipe::November 24

Preheat oven to 350*

Sift together:
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
3 TBS cocoa
2 tsp soda
1 tsp salt

10 TBS cooking oil (1/2 cup + 2 TBS)
2 TBS vinegar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups cold water

Mix well. Bake in a 9" x 13" cake pan for 35 minutes.

This is one of my favorite cakes! I usually frost it with homemade buttercream frosting:

3 cups powdered sugar
2 or 3 TBS butter or margarine (your preference)
(2 TBS cocoa powder if chocolate is desired)
1 tsp vanilla
add milk to desired consistency (add 1 TBS at a time & check consistency - if it gets too thin, add a little more powdered sugar)

Mix together until thoroughly creamed. Add milk 1 TBS at a time and blend in between until you get desired consistency (about the consistency of toothpaste)
