With the newly released Heinz coupon; I recommend trying this fun, quick and easy clean up recipe.  My 5 year old thinks I’m Krazy not using a mixing bowl!  This cake is made directly in the pan!  And, can you tell what else is missing?  That’s right, the recipe doesn’t call for any eggs!

Wacky Krazy Cake

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1 T white vinegar
1/3 cup vegetable, peanut or light olive oil
1 cup cold water, milk or chocolate milk

There are no mixing bowls to worry about, since the cake is mixed directly in the pan!  Just make sure your 8 or 9 inch pan is greased well with Crisco or vegetable shortening.

Measure the flour, sugar, cocoa, salt and baking soda into the pan.  Using a fork or mixing whisk, stir ingredients until no streaks remain and everything is well combined.  Scoop out three holes or valleys in the flour mixture.  Pour the vinegar into the first hole, the vanilla in the second, and oil in the third.  Pour the water or milk over everything and stir with fork or whisk until everything is well blended.  Don’t forget the corners of the pan and edges!

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.  Cool 5 minutes and cut into squares.  Serve while still warm with ice cream or cool whip.  Enjoy!
