This cake recipe I found going through my grandmother's recipe books. This recipe was written in old hand writing in a book dated 1923. It is a family hit and I get begged to make it for every family get-together. You cannot go wrong with this one! I updated the recipe a bit to my own tastes but it still holds to its origins. This is a NO EGG recipe! Yeah!
In a mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients (The first five.) Add the water, oil, vanilla, and vinegar; mix well(batter will be thin).
Pour into a greased 13x9x2 in pan or 2 9 inch round cake pans. Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool completely.
For Frosting, in a mixing bowl mix cream cheese and sugar. then add remaining ingredients till well blended and then frost your cake and enjoy! NOTE: I usually melt the butter and mix with wet ingredients in a bowl prior to adding to mixer. I found it makes it come out fantastic!
