This was my Dad's recipe, and I have no idea where he got it, but I've been making it since I was a kid. It's crazy because you mix the ingredients right in the baking dish! It's super simple and quick, and you can't beat the deep chocolate flavor. Topped with a chocolate butter cream frosting -- you're in chocolate heaven! Did I mention chocolate?! ;)

How to Make Crazy Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Sift sugar, flour, salt, cocoa, and soda into a 9" square baking dish.
  • 2Then add vinegar, salad oil, vanilla, and cold water.
  • 3Stir together with a fork until nearly lump free -- make sure to get the corners.
  • 4Bake at 350* for 30-35 minutes, til a toothpick comes out clean.

    Cool to room temp, and frost.
  • 5NOTES: This makes a nice, deep cake.
    I have also used round baking pans, divided the batter between them, and made layer cake (plan much shorter baking time)
    Or you could use a spring form pan, for special occasion decorating :)
  • 6*This recipe is easily made gluten free, by using your favorite gluten-free all purpose baking flour. (I like Bob's Red Mill brand.)
