Wacky Cake

I finally have some time to post this recipe.  We baked this cake for my brother’s rehearsal dinner dessert.  {print recipe}

4 1/2 cups flour

3 cups sugar

1/2 cup cocoa

1 Tablespoon baking soda

3 Tablespoons vinegar

1 cup oil

1 Tablespoon vanilla

3 cups water


Cool whip

sour cream

sliced strawberries

powdered sugar

Sift all dry ingredients into bowl.   Add vinegar, oil, vanilla and half of the water.  Stir well.  Add rest of water, and stir until well mixed.

 Bake at 350 F for 25-30 minutes

 For the topping, don’t mix this up until just before you serve it.  I don’t have exact measurements.  Mix in a ratio of 2/3  cool whip and 1/3 sour cream.  Mix the powdered sugar with the strawberries and then gently fold into the cool whip mixture.  Serve a scoop of topping on top of each piece of cake.

Makes an 18×26 inch sheet pan.   Cut in half for 9 x 13 inch pan, or a 2 layer cake.
