I made a Crazy Cake today. It just seemed fitting since I’m entering into a whole new realm of personal insanity these days.

Wanna make your own? Here’s the recipe! (And – yay! – it’s vegan for those of you who care about those things!)

Crazy Cake

3 cups plain flour
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking soda (UK: bicarbonate of soda)
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups cold water
(US to UK measurements can be found here: US cups to UK weights (dry ingredients) and US to UK liquid conversions.)

  • Sift flour, salt, baking soda, and cocoa together in ungreased
    9×13 cake pan
  • Make three wells or ditches in the dry mixture
  • Pour vegetable oil in the first, vinegar in the second, and vanilla
    in the third
  • Pour cold water all over and stir well with a fork
  • Bake at 350ºF (175ºC) for 30-40 minutes or until tooth pick
    inserted in the middle comes out clean
  • Use frosting or powdered sugar (UK: icing sugar) for topping (I use sugar)
