Crazy Cake

Robyn’s first offering for 2011 was the aptly named Crazy Cake. This almost breaks the rules of Cake Club as it doesn’t contain any butter, but there is quite a lot of sugar and quite a lot of oil, so it probably isn’t very good for you anyway so we let her off.

1 1/2 cups flour
2 Tbsp cocoa
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 Tbsp vinegar
1 tsp vanilla essence
3/4 cup water

Line a 20 cm square tin with baking paper, and grease and lightly flour the sides.

Measure the dry ingredients and sift together in a large bowl. Measure the oil and add to the bowl without stirring. Add the other wet ingredients, and stir well with a fork until smooth.

Pour into the tin and bake at 190°C for 30-40 minutes. Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a rack. Dust with icing sugar or cover with chocolate butter icing, and enjoy!
